If we imagine our body a home, each of its cells are small and large rooms which form a roof so that we can be healthy and live well. But sometimes some malign cells enter one of the rooms and the only way we can say goodbye to them is the entry of new cells called stem cells. These new cells are like seeds in agriculture which become isolated from bone marrow, peripheral blood or sieved stem cells and are injected to the body of the patient in need of stem cell transplantation who has been through chemotherapy. In this way the damaged home will be repaired.
On the occasion of the World Marrow Donor Day we thank all the members of MAHAK's HLA Bank for increasing the chance of recovery and well-being for the cancer-stricken children by donating samples of hematopoietic stem cells.
