Get short URL

Every day, donors of bone marrow and stem cells save lives of strangers by becoming their blood sisters and brothers. Finding a genetic twin is like winning the lottery; the changes are 1 in 10 thousand. Individuals and charities in Russia and abroad work together to raise awareness about donation and recruit new volunteers whose generous gift might one day cure someone with a fatal blood disease.
