The Sunflower Fund

The Sunflower Fund actively educates and recruits potential bone marrow stem cell donors, onto the South African Bone Marrow Registry to help save the lives of patients suffering from leukaemia and other life threatening blood disorders.

75 % of patients are under the age of 25. The odds of a patient finding their match is 1:100 000. The Sunflower Fund pays R1000 per stem cell donor that is tissue typed in South Africa. We organise fundraising events throughout the year to pay for this, but our dream is to build a state asset, representative of 100 000 donors per ethnic group so that we can increase these odds for patients who desperately need a miracle and save more lives in SA and around the world.
