Objective Action

The aim of creating a Bone Marrow Donor Registration Center at IASO is to find donors of bone marrow, to be used in transplantations for children and adults suffering from serious diseases, such as leukemia, aplastic anemia and thalassemia. This offers hope to these patients, as a transplantation is the only way to treat these diseases.

Description
