Be a Bone Marrow Donor today!

If you are between the ages of 17 to 49, in good health and fully understand the implications of bone marrow donation, we invite you to register as a potential bone marrow donor at any of the donor centre listed below. We will require a simple buccal swab from the side of the mouth to test and establish your HLA* tissue type. This initial testing is done on the buccal sample and not marrow.

Do note that we will only be in touch with you for your consent to donate marrow, only if your HLA* (tissue type) matches perfectly with that of the patient in need.
