Winnipeg Medical Laboratory Assistant students and Canadian Blood Services team up to save lives
Canadian Blood Services will be on-campus running a OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow information and registration event next week in Winnipeg. Please drop by their booth; you could be a potential lifesaving match for a very sick patient!
Date: Wednesday, May 24th, 2017
Time: 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Location: Student Lounge, 265 Notre Dame Ave. Campus, Winnipeg
If you are unable to attend the on-campus event, you can register online here.
The most common need for a stem cell transplant is to treat certain forms of blood cancers or blood disorders, which may cause an inability to generate healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen or healthy platelets that control excess bleeding.
Most often, a stem cell transfusion is a patient's last chance at recovery.
