Who will cover the costs of my blood stem cell donation?

Donating blood stem cells is a voluntary act of solidarity with a seriously ill person. There will be no cost to you. When a donor is matched with a patient, DKMS-BMST covers all costs that could be incurred by a donor as a result of the donation process. DKMS-BMST will also cover the costs for a companion to travel with you to the hospital.

It is not necessary to use a donor’s own health insurance. Whilst it is extremely rare to require follow-up care if it is ever needed, the donor’s costs will also be covered by DKMS-BMST. Other than that, we are not legally allowed to make any payments or rewards to the donors for the provision of blood stem cell transplantation.

There are many ways to get involved and support our mission.
You could be raising awareness, join the registry, hosting your own event, taking on a fundraising challenge, or anything in between.
