Bone Marrow Donor Urgently Required

A blood donor campaign is underway to help the daughter of a Madeiran nurse, who is suffering from an cancer, and her only hope of survival is a bone marrow transplant. 

The plea was issued from the Order of Nurses of the Region, who would like to remind potential donors that becoming a bone marrow donor does not cost anything, and that by doing so you can save a life.  To qualify, you must be aged between 18 – 45, weigh a minimum of 50 kilos, be at least 1.50m tall, healthy, and have never had a blood transfusion.

All you have to do to register is fill in the form, which is available through the Madeira Nurses Association website, this can either be emailed to, or faxed to (+ 351) 21 750 41 41.

Each candidate will be evaluated, and anyone with a match will be called forward to give blood at their local blood transfusion centre. 

If you can help, please fill in the relevant forms, who knows, a simple act of kindness could save a young girls life.
