Sharing Life

Sharing Life

This book is about heroes; donors who have donated their bone marrow or blood stem cells to save a stranger’s life. Behind the scenes, there are amazing people who play an unseen but vital role in the journey these cells make from the donor to a patient. These include medical personnel, search coordinators, donor recruiters and couriers. Nearly 50% of the patients have received cells from a donor who lives in another country. This means that each day over 20 couriers travel across continents to reach the patients and their families, whose lives will soon be changed forever.

This is a collection of true stories about people who care, who have reached across boundaries of nationality, ethnicity and geography to make a real difference to the lives of patients in need.
