Aniket moved to Germany, got married and had a son. His life was perfect, until he got tragically diagnosed with blood cancer.
Immediately, he was admitted in Uniklinikum and after 5 rounds of chemo, he came out of it successfully. As his family was celebrating his victory over this disease, the cancer began to relapse and his condition was deteriorating, once again. Aniket’s doctors have advised him that a stem cell transplant from a matching donor is his only hope.
As he is from India, he’s most likely to find a matching donor in the same ethnic group. His wife Spoorthy, hopes that his fellow Indian brothers and sisters will come forward and register as potential donors so he can undergo his treatment and live a better life.
You can help!
The need for his HLA match is immediate. In order to avoid inevitable health complications, Aniket needs a stem cell transplant as quickly as possible.
Registering as a potential stem cell donor takes only 5 minutes of your time and it helps us find Aniket, and other such patients, get their lifesaving transplant.
How can we beat blood cancer together?
DKMS-BMST has been working to find the right donor for patients suffering from blood cancer and blood disorders in India. So far, we have facilitated 72 blood stem cell donations. For a stem cell donation, the tissue characteristics of the donor must match those of the patient. When you join the stem cell registry you are on standby to be matched and potentially save the life of anyone with a blood cancer or blood disorder who needs a blood stem cell donation. You can be the right person and with your stem cell donation a real lifesaver.
