DKMS-BMST together with Curly Tales making a difference!

Ready to become a potential lifesaver?

You can be a part of our mission to potentially save the life of a blood cancer patient in need.

CurlyTales has joined hands with DKMS-BMST, to talk about the state of blood cancer in India.


In India, every year over 1 lakh people are diagnosed with blood cancer or other blood disorders and despite this huge burden, only 0.04% of the total population is registered as potential blood stem cell donors. While blood cancer is life-threatening, a set of healthy blood stem cells from a matching donor can be life-saving. The demand and supply gap is increasing as people don’t register themselves as potential blood stem cell donors due to the lack of awareness. You can help by registering with us and ordering a swab kit for your home!

To be part of a highly emotional journey does have its ups and downs, Dr Elke mentions, but to get up and save 21 lives every day is an extremely rewarding experience for the entire team.
As Patrick Paul rightly states in the video, India is the first Asian country to be part of the DKMS family and his vision for our country is that we can garner a minimum of 5 million potential donors registered with DKMS-BMST.

It is very important to have more and more donors on the registry so that every patient with blood cancer or a blood disorder who needs a transplant can find a matching donor. You might be the only person in the world who is the right genetic match for a patient who desperately needs a stem cell transplant to give them a second chance at life.

If you are aged between 18 – 50 and in general good health, please register. Every registration will make a huge difference for people living with blood cancer and blood disorders. You could say that this unique match is basically one in a million.

Help us fulfil our vision of providing a second chance at life for every patient in need of a matching donor by registering with us. Change is here, and it comes in the form of YOU!
