Donations for leukemia treatments

Today, June 14, is World Blood Donor Day!

Blood donation plays an essential role in the treatment of cancer patients. In fact, they are the leading recipients of blood products (source EFS) :

  • Treatment of leukemia requires regular transfusions
  • The effects of chemotherapy can be offset by transfusions.

Another donation is essential for the treatment of leukemia: Stem cell donation (registration on the registry limited to 18-35 year olds).
