An Initiative to Encourage more people in Australia to become Bone Marrow Donors
Leukemia is a rare form of blood cancer that is very hard to cure without the support of another person’s donated blood. People of all ages from all over the world are struck down with this disease and finding the right blood match is vital for their hopes to become cancer-free. The solution can be as simple as the right matching person giving blood for one day.
Peter Selby, a former player of the Power House Rugby Union Club in Victoria, himself a leukemia sufferer, has started a campaign to educate young rugby players on the importance of donating blood and registering as Bone Marrow Donors.
With the support of his rugby mates and the Power House Rugby Union Club, they have come together, “strapped on the boots” and are now taking on a more important opponent called Leukemia in the Rugby Club Donation Challenge!
