Stem Cell Donor Registry Day

Utrecht
19 Sep 2019
10:00

Product Description

Over 9000 Dutch citizens are diagnosed with leukemia every year (Matchis, 2019). For most of them stem cell donors are needed, as it is their last chance for survival. Often a matching donor cannot be found, as such match has to be extremely precise and currently there is a shortage of unrelated donors. When there is no match, the possibility of death becomes very real.

Give someone a chance to live: sign up as a stem cell donor!
We at GenDx, together with Matchis (Dutch Center for Stem Cell Donors), invite you to sign up as a stem cell donor! Are you 18 – 50 of age and healthy?* Come to our Stem Cell Donor Registry Day on September 19th at the Utrecht Science Park (USP) and get all the information you need to sign up as a donor.

We will be ready to answer any of your questions related to stem cell donation and guide you through a very simple process of subscribing as a stem cell donor.
