December last year Maria Kastoras,
passionate community educator, friend and dedicated mother passed away. Maria
was a tireless advocate for encouraging blood donation and the awareness of
genetic blood disorders such as Thalassaemia and Sickle Cell Anaemia. Since
then, there have been many requests to honour her legacy, celebrate her life
and continue her great work, so today with the support of Maria's son Theodore
and family, we are launching our #makeitcountformaria campaign.
