On September 15, 2017, St. Peterburg’s AdVita charitable foundation that helps cancer patients organized, for the first time in Russia, a personal meeting between bone barrow donors and cancer survivors, whose lives were saved by the transplantations. Hotel Indigo was most proud to support this amazing initiative and welcome the donors and recipents for the duration of their visit. Even a few years ago such a meeting would have been unthinkable in Russia. The Bone Marrow Donors’ Database did not exist in Russia until 2013! Before that time, the patients could only make use of a very small database containing of bone marrow samples of relatives, doctors and a few volunteers. Today, the nationwide database already lists more than 74 000 donors, and we do believe that it will grow very fast.
