Barry Brian Fraser
1947-2014

Donations made in Barry’s memory will go to the research currently being undertaken at the University of Calgary into Graft Versus Host Disease (GvHD) to enhance the understanding of the disease complications, improve donor selection criteria and enhance the life expectancy and quality of life for many transplant recipients in the future.

GvHD affects some 40 per cent of recipients of stem cell/bone marrow transplants and includes mild to severe side effects and even death.

Dr. Jan Storek and Dr. Faisal Khan are undertaking very promising research into Graft Versus Host Disease. The goal of Dr. Storek’s research is to minimize the likelihood of developing GvHD by identifying those patients who are at high risk and giving them extra doses of the medications. Dr. Khan’s research focuses on improved donor/patient matching to reduce the incidence of GvHD.

The University of Calgary Development Office will issue tax receipts for all donations. You can donate here online as well as by cheque, made payable to “University of Calgary”, with an indication on the cheque that the donation is to go directly to GvHD Research. Cheques can be mailed to Fund Development Office, HSC 302, Health Sciences Centre, University of Calgary, 3330 Hospital Dr. NW, Calgary AB., T2N 4N1. 

With many, many thanks,

Diane
