Pareto aims to enhance the lives of both patients and donors. Patients receive a potentially life-saving transplant of hematopoietic stem cells while donors receive up to $10,000 per donation.
Adult stem cells are donated through a process called apheresis.
Instead of donating blood or plasma, stem cell donation requires an HLA match between donors and patients.
We know you've got questions, we've got answers!
In general, if you are between the ages of 18-44 and are in good health, you are qualified to donate. Autoimmune diseases and diabetes are a few conditions that preclude you from donating.
We work with major medical centers all around the country to facilitate donation and transplantation. Likely, there is a donation center in your near you!
On average, donors have a 1/40 likelihood of being a match for a patient in need. For some, matches are found immediately. For others, it can be months or years later.
