Supporting World Blood Cancer Awareness Day

If you could save a life, would you?

The 28th May is World Blood Cancer Awareness Day, a global day of awareness dedicated to the fight against blood cancer. This year DKMS’s campaign #Swab4Life aims at notifying people about becoming a donor, as right now there is a shortage of people on the list. Not many people have heard of becoming a stem cell donor, but for those battling blood cancer (the most common cancer in children), a stem cell donation is their last chance to beat it.

It’s super easy to become a stem cell donor – just a few minutes to sign up to receive a pack, a quick swab of your cheek and then you’re on! Should anyone with blood cancer match with your stem cells now or in the future, you’ll be able to donate and save a life!

In order to raise awareness, Danny Dwyer and Project Manager Joe Fennessy took part in a short two-minute video highlighting how easy it is to sign up.
