If you are a potential match, we’ll need a blood sample for additional testing.
If you are then a successful match, there’s two ways you can donate, through apheresis where your blood is processed through a machine and given back to you, or via a donation made through your hip bone.
Whilst there are differences in the usefulness of both, the donor always has the final decision on how to donate.
Then relax, knowing you’re a hero to us, and many more people across the world!
