Fairvital fundraiser for the bone marrow donor centre 2018

All it takes is 2 hours and 40 minutes to save someone's life!

A true story

Stammzellenspender Matthias Kremer "My name is Matthias Kremer. I'm 33 years old and approx. 2 1/2 years ago I became a lifesaver."
When a donor in his hometown had been sought for a young man, who fell ill with leukemia, Matthias Kremer got himself registered at the KMSZ in Düsseldorf, Germany. What happened afterwards and why he suddenly had a guest from Russia will move you deeply!

In Germany alone, every year approx. 12000 people are diagnosed with leukemia or other malignant blood diseases. This means: every 60 minutes someone is diagnosed with leukemia.

The many individual cases of this insidious disease made us feel moved to initiate a very special aid campaign already in 2016 and 2017. Because the main thing that is needed in the battle against cancer is money. Please help!

How Matthias Kremer became a lifesaver

It all began with a saliva sample I sent to the bone marrow donor centre. Weeks and months went by until I received an email of the bone marrow donor centre in the summer of 2015.

At first I thought it was a joke. Then I remembered that I had myself registered and I immediately called them. It was true: I was qualified for a stem cell donation.

At the University Hospital, they explained every detail to me.
"Are you ready to do this?" I was asked. I didn't hesitate one second: "Yes, of course!" Several tests followed until it was certain that I was allowed to donate my stem cells.

"No discomforts at all and an excellent care!"

My girlfriend accompanied me. At the clinic, I was connected to a device, which filtered the stem cells from my blood. During this time, I wasn't allowed to move and my girlfriend had to give me something to drink, scratch my nose and entertain me, so I wouldn't fall asleep.

After 2 hours and 40 minutes it was over. I didn't have any discomforts and was considerately taken care of.

"It was the right decision!"

Lebensretter matthias Kremer mit der Empfängerin der Stammzellen At the beginning of the year, I suddenly received an email from Russia. I was taken completely by surprise, because the sender was actually the recipient of my stem cells. It turned out that it was a 30 year old Russian from St. Petersburg with a 6 year old son. I was so relieved to hear that she was doing okay.

We exchanged some emails, sent pictures and told each other our stories. She visited me in February.

Her gratefulness and relief was huge. She hugged me and didn't want to let go.

In this moment, I realised that it had been the right decision to get myself registered to save lives.

Get your blood typed!

Regards,
your Matthias
