At DKMS, patients are at the heart of everything we do. Our key mission is to provide a suitable donor for every person in need of a blood stem cell donation.
We work with patients and their families to support them in their appeal to find a perfect matching donor.

21-year-old Omar is one of four brothers from London. While recovering from a motor accident in 2016, Omar was diagnosed with the rare blood disorder aplastic anaemia.
A blood stem cell donation is Omar's best hope of beating aplastic anaemia. He and his family are now appealing for more people to register as potential blood stem cell donors.
Mum of three Venessa was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) in February 2016 and has been told she needs a blood stem cell donation to survive.
Venessa is keeping a Facebook blog about her journey: www.facebook.com/theleukaemiadiva
DKMS supports people with blood cancer and blood disorders, we work closely with patients and their families in appealing for more potential blood stem cell donors to join the register.
We organise donor recruitment events of all sizes in different locations across the UK, from small community events to large events in multinational companies.
