Bone marrow donation

When you become a bone marrow donor, your donation is often the last chance for life for someone with a serious illness.

Enrol as a bone marrow donor

The Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry (ABMDR) is always looking for young, committed, ethnically-diverse donors to help save lives. Ethnic diversity is really important since patients are more likely to find a match with a donor from the same ethnic background.

How it works:

  1. Complete the form at a blood donor centre to enrol as a new bone marrow donor.
    You'll need to:
    • have given, or be prepared to give, blood if eligible.
    • be able to provide a small blood sample for tissue typing.
  2. ABMDR registers your tissue type and details on their database.
  3. They contact you if you're a match to help save someone's life.
