Aplastic anaemia prompted typing campaign

On July 2nd, 2019, RTL ran an episode of “Good Times, Bad Times” (GZSZ), in which Laura, one of the protagonists, fell ill with aplastic anemia. Also in the following episodes Laura’s disease is a recurring theme. Thus, a very rare disease has found its place in an early evening series and aplastic anaemia is being made more known to the younger public.

In this context, an interview was conducted with a sick member of our association, which is to be broadcast on July 24, 2019 in the midday magazine “Punkt 12” (RTL, 12 noon). In addition, a typing campaign will take place on July 28, 2019 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Metropolis Hall in the Babelsberg Film Park (Großbeerenstraße 200, 14482 Potsdam).

The organisers RTL, Filmpark Babelsberg, UFA Serial Drama and DKMS hope that a large number of volunteers follow the call to action to register in the database as potential stem cell donors. Our association will be represented with an information stand.
