Mission 50 for DKMS

Become a donor

Claire is 'Woman on a Mission'

Claire is a former oncology nurse and a proud ambassador for DKMS.

In February 2022 Claire turned 50 and, not content with relaxing with a glass of bubbly, she set off on her biggest mission yet…Mission 50!

Claire will be taking on various challenges, everything from a skydive with her children to organising a local fun run, to raise vital funds and awareness for DKMS. In total, Claire is aiming to raise £50,000 - that’s enough to fund the registration of 1,250 potential lifesavers - and she won’t stop taking on epic missions until she gets there!

Read more about Claire’s Mission 50 on her blog, and follow her on Instagram for Mission 50 updates.

Searching for a match

Every year 2,000 people in the UK with blood cancer or a blood disorder are waiting for a potentially lifesaving stem cell transplant. Finding a matching donor can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. DKMS is dedicated to getting as many people on the stem cell register as possible, increasing the chances of a successful transplant. It costs us £40 to register each potential lifesaver and we rely on our amazing supporters, like Claire, to help raise these funds.

How you can help

You can support Mission 50 by registering as a potential lifesaver on the red ‘Become a donor’ button, or by donating to Claire’s fundraising page by making a gift (below). All proceeds will be sent to DKMS.
