All Reza wanted was a
matching bone marrow
Just before Christmas, 10-year-old Reza was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Normally the odds of finding a matching donor are 1 in 20,000 but because of a lack of Malay donors, Reza’s chances were even less. Today, Reza is a healthy 17 year old thanks to the courage of an ordinary Singaporean who stepped up and donated her bone marrow. The Bone Marrow Donor Programme desperately needs more registered donors, especially from the Malay and Indian communities. If you’re aged between 17 to 49 years old, you could give someone the gift of life.
