Blood donation and grants. How to support the fight against cancer.
To donate blood is a simple, solidarity and painless gesture. And to donate blood in IPO is very gratifying. We treat adult, young people and children with cancer, who need transfusions due to their disease or treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, bone marrow transplant).
At IPO, you can donate whole blood, platelets, plasma or red blood cells. When you donate you can also be registered as a bone marrow donor.
As there is no substitute for human blood, our availability relies exclusively on the generosity of voluntary donors.
Donors may make their donation at IPO at any time during the working period of the department. As for group donations – friends or co-workers – we recommend they are previously scheduled (see contacts). We have designated and free parking areas for the donors.
Join IPO, we need you to treat our patients every day of the year. Thank you!
During the period patients are being treated and followed up in IPO Lisboa, they have access to the treatments, care and support they need during the course of their disease. We guarantee a high-quality technical and scientific assistance, together with a strong humane dimension, which is recognised by society.
IPO Lisboa is funded by the State Budget and performs a tight management of the resources at its disposal. To intervene in areas with insufficient funding, IPO has relied on the support of people, companies and good will organizations helping with renovating and humanizing some spaces used by patients and their families.
With your or your company’s contribution it is possible to help improving the patients’ comfort conditions, to support a specific department of IPO or helping with cancer research. It is your choice. We will always be grateful.
