Advancing the fight against life-threatening blood disorders.
The Sunflower Fund provides support to patients of life-threatening blood disorders like leukaemia and MDS.
They match patients with bone marrow donors, raise funds for treatment, and actively recruit donors onto the South African Bone Marrow Registry.
To increase the chances of patients finding their unique genetic match, the Sunflower Fund needs to ensure that the donor database is constantly growing.
There’s a one in a million chance of a leukaemia patient finding their match, so the larger the database, the better the patient’s chances of survival. Our individual genetic make-up could literally be someone’s only hope of life.
