Open your mouth to fight against blood cancer

Open your mouth to fight against blood cancer

 

Following this motto, we were able to gain 120 new potential stem cell donors on the day of the DKMS donor drive at BOLL & KIRCH on 2nd October 2013.

Leukemia can affect anybody. It is therefore even more important for men and women from all age groups who are willing to stand up for somebody else’s life to sign up. BOLL & KIRCH therefore appealed to its employees to become life savers. The acquisition of personal identification information, combined with a simple cheek swabbing process, was all that it took to become registered as an active donor in the DKMS database.

The related costs for each registration were borne by BOLL & KIRCH as a contribution to gaining further donors in the fight against blood cancer.

Because of our donation we were admitted to the “Club of the 1000”. About 3.8 million donors are already registered in the world´s largest database for stem cell donors.

Through this, more than ten suitable donors can be found worldwide every day and more than 38,000 blood cancer patients may already have been given the chance to lead a healthy life. Every new donor can give a patient a new chance for a healthy life.

We thank you for your willingness to become a life-giver. For more information please visit www.dkms.de.
