Scope of organisation

BLOOD CANCER support organisation (non-CLL-specific)


Our appeal is to people who have always wanted to know how to save lives!
The Foundation for the Promotion of Bone Marrow Transplantation (SFK) provides information on the requirements placed on a bone marrow/stem cell donor.

The SFK has founded regional SOS groups and looks after these patient groups in seven cities in German-speaking Switzerland. However, due to the Covid19-situation currently only “online”._

Patients with cancer in bone marrow – and their relatives – meet in the SOS groups- leukaemias, myelodysplastic syndromes, multiple myeloma/plasmacytoma, lymphomas.
