“'Blood stem cell transplants are well established in treating many forms of blood cancer. Despite the recent advances in healthcare, it is unfortunate that there are still many potentially treatable patients who are waiting for a match. At UCL, we have a strong desire to contribute to the fight against blood cancer and DKMS is the perfect gateway for us to act on our values. Working with DKMS is a highly valuable opportunity which allows us to make a difference and save lives. During our time as student ambassadors, we have developed strong communication and team working skills which allow us to organise events successfully. Furthermore, we have enjoyed the experience of working together towards a common cause as a team and developed strong friendships in the process. The team at DKMS is extremely pleasant to work with and provides excellent support for any issues which we may run into. We strongly recommend volunteering with DKMS during your time in university for an extremely rewarding and enlightening experience.”

''Volunteering for DKMS is a fantastic opportunity that adds value to my life and a direction. After all, I have a chance to contribute to saving lives! I would encourage anyone to volunteer as you don’t have to be an expert. The Charity provides the training, makes sure you feel supported, and if you have any questions or problems they are there to help in any way they can. Just be yourself and if you have a genuine interest in learning and helping blood cancer patients – try volunteering with DKMS to see what it’s all about and how rewarding it is to give your time to make life better for other people”

Since my brother has been diagnosed with Leukaemia, it has become my mission to do everything I can to increase the survival chances amongst people with blood cancer. The amazing work at DKMS increases the amount of people on the stem cell register, and gives a second chance of life to many people, all over the world. Volunteering for DKMS is such a great experience and I am really enjoying working for such a worthwhile organisation. If you want to do something super easy and rewarding today, sign up to become a potential donor or volunteer – you really could make a difference to somebody’s life.
