Claire (aka Woman on a Mission) 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!
Throughout her 50th year Claire will be taking on various challenges, everything from a marathon to a sober month, to raise vital funds and awareness for DKMS. In total, Claire is aiming to raise £50,000 throughout the year – that’s enough to fund the registration of 1,250 potential lifesavers.
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 and 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.
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 clicking the green button. All proceeds will be sent to DKMS.
