Stem Cell donation drive for Cypriot man

St. George’s Greek Orthodox Church, Kingston upon Thames, recruitment drive, on behalf of DKMS on Sunday 6th March between 10:30am to 2:30pm.

If you are aged between 17-to-55-year-olds have a simple cheek swab taken.

Please step forward, there aren’t many Greek Cypriots like Zac Zacharia on the register and for that reason Zac hasn’t found a match so far. If you can’t get there, you can have a kit sent to your home. It’s so easy and takes next to no time. This simple swab could save Zac’s life.

There is nothing to fear, it is just a cheek swab, so nothing too intrusive. After two years of lateral flows and PCRs, a gentle cheek swab is nothing to worry about.

“Back in August 2021 we were shocked to learn that one of our Community Members Zac Zacharia was rushed to hospital after falling unwell. After extensive tests Zac was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Zac urgently needs a blood stem cell transplant to save his life.” (Source: St. George’s Greek Orthodox Church, Kingston upon Thames)
