HELP FIGHT CANCER
Cancer causes more deaths in South Africa than HIV/Aids, TB and malaria combined. You can help sufferers by buying the Sunflower Funds Tube of Hope. The money generated by the sales goes towards the recruitment of blood stem cell donors to give the hope of cure to patients diagnosed with life-threatening blood diseases like leukaemia who are in need of a life-saving stem cell transplant. A patient in need of a transplant needs a genetic matching donor. There is only a 25% chance that a sibling will be a match. The remaining 75% chance depends on finding an unrelated matching donor. The best chance of finding this match is someone from the same ethnic background as the patient. So, SA needs an ethnically diverse registry of committed donors. Buy your Tube of Hope at Pick n Pay nationwide for R30. They come in six colours. And do register as a donor too – see details at sunflowerfund.org.
