STEP 1: Preliminary search for potential matching donors
As soon as a patient is referred to the SABMR by his or her physician, the SABMR begins a preliminary search of donors on its local database as well as the international database of Bone Marrow Donors Worldwide (BMDW), which stores the information of > 32 million donors worldwide. This search is done, courtesy of the SABMR, at no cost to the patient. At this stage, the match is on paper only.
SABMR staff will be working remotely during the national lockdown. To contact the SABMR please call +2721 447 8638, alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
