Patient meeting

Everyone grieves differently

We are always here for you.

Last updated: 03/08/2021

It is an incredible feeling when the patient you donated to recovers with the help of your blood stem cells and we will be there to celebrate with you. We will also be there to support you if your patient sadly dies. Some donors are surprised by how much they are touched by the death of a person they do not know. It is important to remember that with your blood stem cell donation, you gave a patient a second chance of life. You gave them and their family hope and valuable time together with your generous and courageous action, even if they were ultimately unable to overcome their disease.

If you feel you need support during this difficult time or have any questions, please send an email to followup@dkms.org.uk or give us a call on 020 8747 5600 any time between 09:00 and 17:00 from Monday to Friday.

There are many ways to get involved and support our mission.

You could be raising awareness, join the registry, hosting your own event, taking on a fundraising challenge, or anything in between.
