The Sunflower Fund was originally formed in 1999 in support of the South African Bone Marrow Registry and was inspired by Chris Corlett’s heroic struggle against leukaemia. It was originally formed by Chris’s mom, Tina Botha and a group of parents whose children had contracted leukaemia, and in some cases had lost their battle against it. Their aim was to rally financial support to recruit more donors to increase the number of bone marrow stem cell donors in South Africa. At that stage there were only about 800 - 1000 donors on the SA Bone Marrow Registry. To date The Sunflower Fund has raised millions, mostly through its own fundraising events and efforts, to pay for donor testing to increase the SA Bone Marrow Registry which now has over 65 500 donors.
