BMT Ghana has already performed the First Four Bone Marrow Transplants on Wednesday July 4, 2018, July 8, 2018, July 10, 2018 and October 5, 2018.
BMT would help millions of Ghanaians and many other African patients who have met the criteria for the BMT to have it.
Unfortunately, some have based their entire medical and political careers on telling lies or making false publications that there is no cure to Sickle Cell Diseases and other blood disorders.
Why are some of these folks working so hard to deny patients the truth to BMT is still not known? Some folks sit on the side-lines and root for failure and others are standing in the way of progress.
It is so frustrating the way in which BMT was mauled by critics in Ghana. Some of people’s concerns have grown out of bogus claims spread by those whose only agenda is to kill the progress and the good news BMT Ghana brings to those who desperately need it.
One thing that is clear and I am very confident about is that history is not kind and would not be to those who deny patients and their families the basic right to cure (BMT).
Of course, we have no interest whatsoever in putting pharmaceutical companies and their interest groups out of business but to give millions of poor innocent children and their families who have met the criteria for BMT a relieve and a fair chance to cure.
Well, the time for bickering is over and now is when we must all bring the best ideas together to help innocent children who die every day of curable SCDs in our dear country Ghana and beyond.
At this note, we are willing to work with anyone who is genuinely willing to make this program work even better. We remain open to other ideas that accomplish our very goal.
Statistically, every year, one in five of our children experience a SCD problem, and hundreds of thousands of people are struggling. We believe that no family should have to struggle with SCD alone.
We must also end the stigma of SCD problems. People need our support more than ever before, and the demand for these services is growing on a daily basis.
