Ignacio urgently needs a stem cell donor. Could it be you?
Save someone's life

A simple swab will help us find out.

 

Ignacio is a 50-year-old husband and father. He has a rare blood cancer called Myelofibrosis, for which his only chance of successful treatment is with a stem cell transplant from someone with a matching tissue type.

Because Ignacio is Jewish, a matching donor is far more likely to be Jewish too. Ignacio’s family background includes Jewish individuals from Central and Eastern Europe including Ukraine, and Spanish and Portuguese individuals from Europe, as well as Central America, and South America, and this is particularly an appeal to people of similar ancestry.

The only way to find out if you are a match is for you to take a simple test. This just means brushing the inside of your mouth with a cotton bud-like swab. If you’re 16-55, please attend the following swabbing event or click on the link below to order a postal swab kit.
