Leukemia

Leukemia, one of among deadly blood cancers starts in bone marrow. Its a condition of  uncontrolled growth of White Blood Cells. Abnormal cells severely affect patients’ immune system. Mostly Leukemia fall into 2 groups and each based on rate of progress classified as Acute or Chronic. The causes of this cancer can be rooted to genetic and environmental factors. Depending on the type of Leukemia and the treatment given, the chances of survival can vary from 40% to 90%.

Stem cell transplant is the most effective medical procedure to treat leukemia. Unlike chemotherapy, where the number of side effects are manifold and the success rate is minimal, stem cell transplant is safer and has higher success rate.

Stem cells are the basic building blocks which originate from the bone marrow and give rise to all the the other cells like white blood cell, red blood cells , brain cells, muscle cells etc. in the body. For a person suffering from blood cancer, white blood cells grow abnormal and undergoing chemotherapy kills are these abnormal cells, along with normal cells

Then these magical cells donated by any healthy person can save  patient’s life. Stem cells replenish lost normal white blood cells from patient.This way a victim can lead a normal life as the cancerous cells are completely drained out and new cells start growing. The process of donation involves separating  stem cells from donor’s blood and injecting him back rest of blood. 

 

Bugga

 Bugga is a campaign to create awareness about blood cancer and how blood stem cell donation can save lives of patient.

Every year 50,000 Indian Patients die of blood cancers. Among 44% are children. But important thing is most of them can be saved with blood stem cell donation which is absolutely safe and as simple as blood donation.

Problem in India is finding a matching donor. A person whose white blood cell type matches with that of patient can only give his stem cells to patient. Reason being most of us are not aware of blood stem cell donation and its potential to change lives of patients. In India we have around 1.2 lakh donors available in few registries.

Probability of match for Indian patients is  1 : 20000. We need big group of people who can give blood in case of match.

Bugga is going in search of those saviours. Saving a life is in everyone’s hands.

We all can be hero of a patient’s life. To register in our database. All you need to do is rub a cotton swab inside your beautiful cheek(Bugga). Cells collected from swab are used to find your white blood cell type. And in case of match all you need to do is give your blood. As you are the only person who can save and gift patient LIFE. come join hands with us in finding saviours
