Urgent appeal for a STEM cell donor

Three days ago The EDGE shared the story of Gracey Green. This little one urgently needs a bone marrow or STEM cell donor and the South African Bone Marrow Registry is imploring people of colour to come forward and be tested in order to find a match for Gracey.

Normally it takes 6 to 8 weeks to get approved as a donor - time a sick person does not always have. Gracey's case illustrates why we need a registry. The chance of finding a suitable donor is just so much better if the SABMR has a bigger data base of possible matching donors.

Registering to be a bone marrow or STEM cell donor is a painless process. All it takes is a swab from your oral cavity. You can do it yourself with a FREE kit that is available from Sedgefield Pharmacy. The kit will be sent to SABMR and if you are a match for Gracey, you will be contacted.

If you are healthy, between the age of 16 and 45 and have it in your heart to give a little baby a chance to live and enjoy life like you do, register yourself as a STEM cell donor. Visit us at Sedgefield Pharmacy to collect a test kit.

☝Remember, one never knows when one of your loved ones might need a donor.

Here is the link to Gracey’s story:


300 000 women per year lose their lives to cervical cancer - and it can be prevented!

It's cervical cancer Awareness Month.
Every year more than 300,000 women die from cervical cancer. We can end this with better access to vaccination, screening and treatment.


Did you know that a vaccine can protect your daughter from cervical cancer?

It's Cervical Cancer Awareness Month!
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection and is the cause of almost all cervical cancer. HPV vaccine is safe and prevents cervical cancer. WHO recommends two doses for all girls aged 9-14 years.


At the tail end of 2021 we've come to this conclusion: life is short - make the most of it!

Happy new year everybody! May 2022 be kind to you.


May the true spirit of Christmas shine in your hearts and light your path.


It is holiday and things happen, right? Just in case you need us....


It's only when you or a loved one need a stem cell donor that you realise the importance of stem cell donation. Think about it and maybe this year you can give someone the gift of having a second chance at life.


Cancer is brutal. Although many cancers can be treated into remission with chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery, for some cancers none of these options is the answer.

Every year, thousands of people with leukemia, other blood diseases, and immune disorders reach a point where the only possible cure and their only chance for survival is a bone marrow implant or stem cell therapy.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are the body's raw materials — cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated. Under the right conditions in the body or a laboratory, stem cells divide to form more cells called daughter cells. Stem cells serve as a repair system for the body. There are two main types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells which are the type used in stem cell therapy.

Stem cells are harvested from the blood of a suitable healthy donor. Some patients might have a compatible donor in their family, but most will need a stranger’s help - a stranger that matches their exact type of cells.

With thousands of tissue types, finding that perfect match is just a 1 in 100 000 chance. Some patients may have been blessed with such unique tissue types that they may have an even lower chance of finding a match.

The South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR) was founded in Cape Town in 1991 with a single mission: to save lives. As an accredited member of the World Marrow Donor Association, the SABMR is dedicated to helping patients in need find their match.
For 30 years, patients have been connected with their lifesaving donors and have been working tirelessly to expand the donor pool to ensure that every patient needing a transplant has the hope to find a perfect match.

This is where you can make a difference: by registering as a bone marrow/stem cell donor your name can be added to this registry and perhaps one day you will be called upon to give someone the chance to recover and live a healthy life.

Getting your name on that registry is as easy as one, two, three! Sedgefield Pharmacy in collaboration with DKMS Africa's Donar Recruitment Pilot Project will help you to get your name on the stem cell donor list. It is easy and pain-free with a self-help kit that is available from Sedgefield Pharmacy.

If you are between the age of 18 and 55 years and are generally healthy you may qualify. However, there are other criteria that you have to meet to be eligible to be included in the stem cell registry. Ask any of the dispensary personnel at Sedgefield Pharmacy for more detail.

Let's make a difference and perhaps one day give someone the gift of life.


World Antimicrobial Awareness Week!

Do you trust your pharmacist? Most people do, and so they should. The theme of World Pharmacist Day 2021 is “Pharmacy: Always trusted for your health”.

In this time of uncertainty, one thing you can be sure of is that your pharmacist has your best interests at heart. Speak to your pharmacist about more than just your medication, ask about what other services your local pharmacy offers. Perhaps you have a wound that just won’t heal, show it to your pharmacist and ask for advice. Maybe you’ve been feeling run down and tired for a while, speak to your pharmacist about possible vitamin boosters and lifestyle changes.

Trust your pharmacist and remember, they are not just there to hand you your pills, they are often your most accessible healthcare professional as well as being the healthcare professional you see the most regularly.

Today, we want to say thank you to all the pharmacists who work relentlessly to ensure our health and wellbeing is looked after. We trust you. We salute you. We thank you.

Think Pharmacy: Always trusted for your health.


September is Pharmacy Month!

Remember that pharmacists can provide you with information about your medicines. Don't hesitate to ask your nearest


21 September is World Alzheimer's Day!
World Alzheimer's Day, which is observed on 21 September annually, is a day on which Alzheimer's organisations globally raise awareness about Alzheimer's disease and dementia. According to the World Health Organisation, more than 55 million people across the world live with Alzheimer’s disease.


1 Week to World Rabies Day on the 28th of September. The theme this year is Rabies: Facts, not fear.

By law, all dogs and cats in South Africa must be vaccinated against rabies.

The first rabies vaccine is given at 12 weeks (3 months) of age, followed by a booster vaccination between one to 12 months later. Thereafter a booster every three years. In high risk areas, annual vaccination is strongly recommended.

It is never too late for your pet to receive their first vaccination, followed by the booster protocol.

If dogs and cats are effectively vaccinated and boosted as required, it creates a buffer of protection for humans as well as against other wildlife species that may have rabies.

Fact: Vaccinating 70% of dogs in at risk areas can eliminate canine rabies.

It's a boy!

Baby Rory Hugh Daniell arrived yesterday. 56cm and 3.8 kg's... A lot bigger than what his sister was! Mom and baby both doing well. 💙

Congratulations to the proud parents and grandparents!



Every September people come together from all over the world to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that persist around dementia. September 2021 marks the 10th year of this vital global awareness campaign.

World Alzheimer’s Month become increasingly more important following the adoption of the WHO global Plan on dementia in 2017 where every government - including the SA government signed up to deliver national awareness campaigns.

World Alzheimer’s Month is the perfect platform to raise awareness.
Key messages regarding dementia:
• Every 3 seconds someone in the world develops dementia
• Today, almost 60 million people worldwide are living with dementia
• 66% of people living with dementia are living in low-and-middle- income countries
• Dementia is the 6th leading cause of death worldwide
• Most people with dementia do not receive a diagnosis or support
• As populations continue to age, the prevalence of dementia is expected to increase to 152 million by 2050
• Dementia became a trillion-dollar disease in 2018
• Informal dementia care provided is equivalent to 40 million full time workers
• A disproportionate number of women are informal caregivers. Women, most of whom live in LMICs, contribute to 71% of the annual global hours of informal care – that’s 58 billion hours of care!

Let’s all work together to raise awareness and face the challenge of dementia in South Africa.
