On Saturday September 19, it is World Marrow Donor Day. On this day all donors are thanked for their willingness to donate (blood) stem cells for patients in need of a transplant.
At GenDx we are closely involved by the need for more stem cell donors. We therefore have initiated the yearly Dutch Donor Recruitment Day since 2018, to give attention to stem cell donation and actively recruit stem cell donors. We organize this in close cooperation with Matchis, the Dutch foundation that enables patients with leukaemia and other severe blood disorders to receive stem cell transplantation. On this day, both GenDx employees and members of Utrecht student sport associations SPIN, Histos, Orca and Triton are committed to inform and recruit new donors.
This year we will not physically be present on the Utrecht Science Park, but inform and motivate potential stem cell donors via our online channels instead.
Are you between 18-35 years old, healthy and motivated to potentially save lives? Visit www.matchis.nl for more information about stem cell donation, requirements, procedures and registration.
Share your health, become stem cell donor!
