Event Details

Muskaan Foundation Canada has adopted the Surrey fixed donor centre on Sunday, Oct. 28 and committed to recruit new donors and fill appointments to help collect 48 blood donations.

Muskaan Foundation Canada was established in honour of a young girl from Surrey named Muskaan Gill who was diagnosed with Krabbe disease in 2014 and needed a stem cell transplant. There were no potential matches within her family, and Muskaan passed away in 2015 at age eight before an unrelated stem cell donor could be found.

Muskaan’s family and friends will encourage eligible donors of diverse ancestry to register as potential stem cell donors and to donate blood, which is also a requirement for patients waiting for a stem cell match to save their life.

By adopting a donor centre, organizations like Muskaan Foundation Canada can make a difference in the lives of patients in need.
