Once registered, you will remain in the database, and your pseudonymized details will be made available for national and global searches. They will remain available until you reach your 61st birthday at which point your data will be removed from the database. You can also choose to be taken off the database at any time.
This means it is not necessary to register for a second time, or with another donor centre. We, and each of these organizations, list the relevant information of our donors with the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA), so registering again would lead to duplication, confusion and additional costs.
If any of your personal details change (if you change your address, for example) please let us know so that we can update our database and reach you as quickly as possible if you are found to be a match for a patient.
