Russia and the former Soviet Union lack national bone marrow donor registries. The patients have to pay 5,000 euros for the donor search abroad. Our goal is to help 10 needy patients a year.
Russia and the former Soviet Union lack their own bone marrow donor registries. Cancer patients who need the transplants have to pay out of pocket for the donor search abroad, collection of bone marrow, and delivery of transplant. Most of the cancer patients are unable to afford the donor searches, which delays transplantations and results in a bleak outcome.
Our contribution to the cost of donor searches will allow starting donor searches and will give patients time to raise additional amounts for other transplantation-related costs.
Improved survival of cancer patients who undergo bone marrow transplantations.
My classmate died from leukemia at the time when bone marrow transplants were not done in Russia. We strive to let needy patients alive today have access to this potentially curative procedure. - Marina Ouano, President
