We delete blood cancer
The DKMS Foundation is an international non-profit organisation that works to fight blood cancer. For 25 years we have been working so that people all over the world diagnosed with one of these diseases, such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma, will have a second chance. That’s why our work in Spain focuses on patients, pouring all our efforts into helping them to overcome the disease.
Every year, around 18,500 people in Spain are diagnosed with one of the main types of blood cancer. Specifically, around 6,500 are diagnosed with leukaemia, 9,200 with lymphoma and 2,700 with multiple myeloma.
For many patients, the only hope for surviving blood cancer is a bone marrow transplant. However, only 25% of these patients find a match in their family circle. The remainder need someone who selflessly wants to help others. You may be the only hope for many patients!
The DKMS Foundation works tirelessly to improve the quality of life of patients suffering from blood cancer and their families.
