There will be a chance next Saturday and Monday to join the Croatian Bone Marrow Donor Registry.

First out of two actions to join the Croatian Registry will be held on Saturday, April 8, from 9 AM to 11 AM at Trg Petra Preradovića (Flower Square) in Zagreb in cooperation with Croatian Chamber of health professionals.

The Croatian Chamber of Health Professionals initiated this action to mark Medical Laboratory Professionals Day and to help those severely ill with acute and chronic forms of leukemia and patients who are in need of bone marrow transplantation.

On Monday, April 10, from 15.30 PM to 18.30 PM at the Parish Hall of St. George Vir (next to the Croatian Post Office) in Vir (Island of Vir) they will hold another action to join the Croatian Registry.

This action will take place at the initiative of the Association of Blood Donors Vir and its President Mr. Goran Vicković who are celebrating 20 years of the Association.

All healthy citizens between the age of 18 and 40 can join Croatian Registry. The process involves filling out a form and a health questionnaire, and giving out a blood sample for HLA typization which is used to determine antigens of tissue tolerance.

Joining the Croatian Registry is the first step in helping people around the world diagnosed with acute or chronic form of leukemia, or people that have a severe damage of bone marrow.
