Bone marrow donation

Portimão GNR headquarters will be holding a bone marrow donor session on May 14 between 11am and 4pm.

The target is 1,000 donations and the organisers appeal to all potential donors, aged between 18 and 45, weighing at least 50kg and who have not received a blood transfusion since 1980, to help this cause.

Two Algarve children suffering from leukaemia are to benefit from the donations, which will also become part of the national and international stock, helping to save other patients with the illness.

A team of volunteers from the National Centre of Donor Bone Marrow (CEDAC) will be on hand.
