The World Marrow Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of patients with leukaemia and other related ailments by securing the support needed to achieve positive outcomes. Our patients range in age from 2-60 years old, hailing from the Caribbean, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, India and Iran, including a number of people who have had successful stem-cell transplants.
Our projects include initiatives such as a Diversity Programme, encouraging individuals from groups which are underrepresented on worldwide registries to sign up with their local registry as potential donors. We are acutely aware of the difficulty faced by underrepresented groups and mixed-race patients in finding unrelated matches. Improving these numbers, spreading awareness and offering services to areas that have not been reached, is our mission. We have also provided scholarships for the children of deceased patients and we provide support to a number of other causes, including an orphanage in Suriname.
If you would like to support our fundraising effort, you can make a donation by visiting our website at www.worldmarrowfund.org or you can adopt us on Amazonsmile. All donations, no matter how small, will enable us to continue our work to improve the lives of patients with leukaemia and other blood-related diseases and disorders.
Thank you, this really means the world to us.
