Just before her 7th birthday, she received her life-saving gift of blood stem cells from 27-year old Singaporean, Phil Tan who was on the BMDP register. But take a minute and imagine this...what if Phil was not signed up in the BMDP's register because we didn't have the funds to process his cheek swab? Ryssa would not have a matching donor, and she might not have a second chance in life.
Since last year, the cost of processing a cheek swab kit to be added to the register has increased from $150 to $180 and we spent around $3 million to add 17,000 new donors on the register. This year, we need another $3 million to help increase the odds for patients with blood disease to find a match.
Your donation can help add more local heroes like Phil onto the register, saving more lives. At any time, 50 patients are waiting for a bone marrow donor. Please increase their chance of surviving by donating generously!
About the Charity
The Bone Marrow Donor Programme (BMDP) manages Singapore's only register of volunteer bone marrow donors. For the past 20 years, BMDP has been providing that one chance of survival to hundreds of patients suffering from terminal blood-related diseases. When their only chance of survival is to have a bone marrow transplant and they have no matching siblings who can donate healthy blood stem cells, they come to us. With just a one in 20,000 chance of finding a matching donor, BMDP is absolutely committed to building the local donor register into a true national asset able to help all Singaporeans have that second chance; A Donor for every Patient is what we aim for.
