Every year thousands of children are diagnosed with Leukaemia and other bone marrow cancers. Their only chance of living is a transplant from a healthy donor. But chances of finding a donor are just 1 in 100,000 and this is where the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR) comes in. They are the only Registry in South Africa and are dedicated to finding matching donors for those whose lives depend on it - now that's a challenge! As a nonprofit organisation, the SABMR relies on donations to keep up their life-saving work. This year our family have decided to do the epic IMPI Challenge in aid of the SABMR. Our target is to raise R5,000. Please consider supporting us - every bit helps! With much gratitude, the Moore Family xx

The South African Bone Marrow Registry
The South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR) exists to help find matching bone marrow donors for critically ill South African children and adults who need a transplant but do not have a match within their own family. The only one of its kind in South Africa, the SABMR is committed to helping every patient referred to it. If there is no matching donor in South Africa, we take our search worldwide - “We search the world to find your perfect match”.
