I am delighted to get the chance of saving a life and to be a part of such noble cause. “Saving the life of a blood cancer patient was the only reason for me to donate stem cells.”
I was very excited and optimistic when I got to know that I was found to be a match for a blood cancer patient.
My family supported me completely for the noble cause. Although there are no health risks involved for the donor, they were initially a little concerned and suggested to take enough precautionary measures before and after the process and also get confirmation from doctor that there are no risks. DKMS-BMST team was with me in every step of my lifesaving journey and the donation went well.
I am very curious and looking forward to meet the patient if he/she has consent over it. I feel overwhelmed being a life saver. I would strongly recommend every healthy person to register as a Stem Cell donor and take a step towards saving someone in need, as it can happen to your dearest too.
