TRASPLANTES EN COLOMBIA Yes No Anyela un placer saludarte

Ante todo disculpa las demoras.

En Colombia desafortunadame nte no poseemos ni registro de donantes ni bancos de médula osea. Luego de descartar que tengas familiares compatibles para trasplante, al médico tratante le corresponde hacer la búsqueda en bancos internacionales .

Me gustaría ponerme en contacto contigo. No dudes en contactarte con nosotros a los números de contacto que aparecen aquí o escribirnos al correo de la fundación.

Para nosotros es un palcer poderte orientar y apoyar en el proceso de enfermedad y tratamiento.
