YOU COULD SAVE THE LIFE OF SOMEBODY LIKE VEER

Veer is 3. He has a rare genetic disorder called Fanconi Anaemia, and so his bone marrow is not functioning properly.​

He needs to find a lifesaving stem cell donor if he is to survive.

REGISTER TODAY!

Don’t delay! There couldn’t be an easier way to save a life!

South Asians like Veer currently only have a 20% chance of finding a good match. By diversifying the registers, their chance of survival will increase.

REGISTRATION PROCESS

IT'S REALLY EASY TO GET REGISTERED!

If you register online, you get a kit in the post to swab your cheek at home, and then send the swab back in the post. That’s it! No blood tests required!

 

Once registered, you can be matched against any patient (globally) searching for a donor. If you do match, you will have the rare opportunity to save a life.

 

Blood group is not a factor in the matching process, so even if you have a rare group, get yourself registered.

#HelpVeerNow

This is the story of Veer, a Gujarati Jain boy from London (UK).

He has been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that means his stem cell production is reducing, and so his blood cells are also on a decline.

 

As a result, he needs a stem cell transplant. For this he needs a generous stem cell donor from anywhere in the world. You could be the one to save his life, or others in a similar position.

Veer was born in April 2016. He is a very smart, adventurous young boy. He is very energetic and brings a lot of joy to all those around him, young and old. Veer and his elder sister Suhani have been raised with strong cultural values.

 

The family is very religious, following Jain traditions strictly. Both Veer and Suhani go to Pathshala every Sunday, with classes conducted by their father Nirav. As such, the family are ensuring the peaceful religion thrives outside India.

It is very difficult for Indians to find a matched donor, because there are very few Indians on the registers. The chances for Veer are around 20%. His chances will increase significantly if many more Indians (and especially Gujaratis) will register as donors.

So please ACT NOW!... YOU could be the ONE who has the stem cells to SAVE A LIFE!!

Frequently asked questions

How do I join the donor register?


Joining the register is really quite simple and you can do this either at one of the many events we’ll be attending or by contacting Anthony Nolan or DKMS directly. They will send out a swab kit and once you’ve done your swab you can simply return these by post. You’ll get confirmation in just a few weeks. If you don’t live in the UK there may be a registry in your country. We have a full list below.




How can I get involved with Veer's campaign


If you’re thinking of volunteering so that you can help Veer or someone like him simply click here to register your interest. We need help with lots of things. We’ll keep in touch with you to keep you informed of all the actitivities you’re undertaking and you can then decide where you think you’ll be able to help.




I have an idea! Who should I speak to?


If you have an idea that might be useful to the campaign please get in touch and we’ll get back in touch to discuss the idea. If you don’t hear from us immediately don’t worry. Sometimes things get a little hectic and it might take us slightly longer to get back to you but we will definitely get in touch.




I don't live in the UK. Can I get involved?


Absolutely! We’re currently able to get donors registered in multiple countries. Whilst the campaign was launched to help Veer we recognise that there may be many others like him who need help. We’re therefore keen to try and help as many other families as we possibly can. Even if you register in another country and you are a match you can help Veer or others like him.
