If someone has a blood cancer, such as leukaemia, the only chance of saving their life could be a stem cell transplant. But those stem cells have to come from someone with a matching tissue type, which, if you are Jewish, is far more likely to be from someone who is also Jewish. Every year, there are over 1,000 Jewish people around the world who need an unrelated stem cell donor to save their life. If you sign up to the stem cell register and one day come up as a genetic match, you could be that donor. Is your JSoc interested in getting involved? Send Shayna a message!
