#PassItOn: Join the stem cell register this World Blood Cancer Day

Become a donor

Help us #PassItOn this World Blood Cancer Day

Every 20 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. For many, a stem cell transplant from an unrelated donor is their only hope for survival.

Can You Be a Match?

If you're aged 17-55 and in good health, you could offer a second chance for someone in urgent need, just like 23-year-old Alex (pictured left), who generously donated his stem cells to change a life. This World Blood Cancer Day, we are calling on more heroes to join the stem cell register. Together, we can offer more second chances at life to those battling blood cancer and blood disorders. Will you join us?

What does stem cell donation involve?

Donating is simpler than you might think. Just ask Lucinda (pictured right), a previous donor. For most donors, it involves spending a few hours in a comfortable chair while blood is drawn from your arm. Plus, DKMS covers all your expenses and travel. Want to know more? You can read all about the donation process here.

Our goal is to find a matching donor for every patient in need of a transplant. All it takes is one person to change a life – and that person could be you.
