Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre is just one of three centres providing all forms of stem cell transplants to adult cancer patients in Ontario. A stem cell transplant has the ability to give more tomorrows to patients suffering from blood cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma. It is a complex, but potentially life-saving medical procedure, and patients across Ontario are waiting for their opportunity to receive a transplant.
Stem cell transplants, particularly donor-matched transplants (clinically known as allogeneic) are complex and resource-intensive, requiring very specialized facilities and highly trained clinical teams.
Please support our campaign to enable the expansion of a dedicated and specialized clinical space, and to purchase essential equipment, so that Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre can provide 50 per cent more cancer patients with this potentially life-saving treatment. While it is expected that the expansion will be complete and open for patients in winter 2018/19, we need your support now.
