World Bone Marrow Donor Day 2020

  • The Transfusion Center of the Community of Madrid took advantage of World Bone Marrow Donor Day to thank bone marrow donors for their solidarity and commitment. There were 4.022 new donors registered in 2020, despite the months of confinement due to the pandemic, practically the same registration data as in 2019 (4.009). In total, 51.540 Madrid donors registered with REDMO, that is, willing to donate if there was a patient compatible with them. A thousand of these donors were recruited at the height of the pandemic thanks to the whatsapp plan. They were 711 of the 1.143 registered between March and May.

    In 2020 it was not possible to celebrate any act of gratitude, so the Transfusion Center launched an online initiative to encourage bone marrow donation in which 17 municipalities and 10 entities (universities, foundations, companies) participated. All of them joined the Change Your Story Campaign through their websites, RRSS, local media, encouraging young people to find out and register as donors. 355 young people asked to register during this week.
