Every 5 minutes, someone in India is diagnosed with blood cancer or a blood disorder, which means 1,10,000 Indians are diagnosed with blood cancer each year.

  • A stem cell transplant can be the only chance of survival for many of these blood cancers and blood diseases like Thalassemia, Aplastic Anemia and Sickle Cell Anemia.
  • Only 0.09% of Indians are registered as blood stem cell donors. The need for more Indian blood stem cell donors is critical for patients to find a matching donor.

DKMS-BMST is dedicated to help patients suffering from blood cancer and blood disorders by finding a matching donor by registering more people. We have registered over 1,00,000 potential stem cell donors, but the need for more donors persists.

The representation of Indians on the global registry is very poor. This reduces the probability of a patient trying to find a matching donor. So, when it comes to finding a matching donor, a person with the same ethnic background as a patient may be a better match than one who comes from an entirely different background.

YOU can provide patients in need of a stem cell transplant, hope for a second chance at life by registering as a blood stem cell donor.

When you join the stem cell registry, you give hope to a patient who is in urgent need of a stem cell transplant and provide them with a chance of a healthy future.
