Testimonies of bone marrow donors
"To donate bone marrow is to save a life", "to donate is something LITTLE that changes A LOT", "I feel like I have a twin brother somewhere in the world", "to donate is an opportunity for two, for me I can do something amazing, and for the patient they can be cured"...
These are some of the thoughts of the people who have altruistically donated part of their bone marrow. All of these donors gave LIFE to a leukaemia patient who needed a transplant but did not have a compatible family member.
In Spain there are more than 130,000 registered donors and on a global level that figure stands at more than 22 million. They are normal people, healthy citizens who decide to say YES to saving a life and YES to sharing their health with someone who does not have theirs.
Para nosotros son pequeños grandes héroes que, un día, su vida cotidiana dio un giro y se convirtieron en personas que han salvado una vida. Y eso...no lo puede decir cualquiera.
For us they are all heroes who one day turned into life savers. And for this we cannot be more grateful.

- Juan Antonio
"My satisfaction was complete, and the happiness for that person indescribable. I’m a parent and I think about what all of those people who have their children or family members admitted and, just because of that, I know it is worth it. It is a few days of discomforts in exchange for a life and world full of joy. Who can say no to that?"
"It costs nothing, and the security of giving a vital possibility to a person is something indescribable. I recommended it to everyone."
"I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to become donors and to not let go the opportunity to live this experience, it is worth it."
"I hate needles but the most important thing is the solidarity of every person, and not their fears."
"To save someone's life by giving only a small effort, has been the most incredible and grateful experience in my life."
