12th Annual EBMT Patient, Family & Donor Day
Saturday, March 17th 2018
Venue: Centro de Congressos de Lisboa; Room 3A and 3B

The 12th edition of the EBMT Patient, Family and Donor Day is dedicated to people who have had, or are going to have, a bone marrow or stem cell transplantation, and anyone affected by blood cancer or a blood disorder, as well as their relatives, caregivers and donors.

The objective of this special program is to allow the patients involved in a transplant process, and the family members and donors, to exchange experiences, learn from each other and also learn more about the latest research outcomes in the field from a panel of specialists.

We look forward to welcoming patients, families and donors from near and far to take part in this unique and memorable experience.
