Salman Khan to donate his bone marrow

November 14, 2010 - Mumbai

Bollywood actor Salman Khan has pledged to donate his bone marrow to spread awareness on stem cell donation.

Khan urged people to donate their bone marrow to save lives.

"It's simple to donate bone marrow. You don't have to spend money for it. I think everybody should go and donate bone marrow," said Khan.

Bone marrow is used for transplants that are life saving for patients suffering from blood cancer, thalassemia, aplastic anemia, congenital immuno-deficiency states and other such blood related diseases.

"Do it for yourself. God forbids if you ever require bone marrow, then people who think like you will also donate bone marrow for you. So, it will be easy for you to find one," said Khan. By Shaikh Sharik
