21-year-old Yash is suffering from Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), a type of blood cancer and urgently needs a tissue-matching blood stem cell donor to get a second chance at life.
Life was pretty normal for Yash until one day, he discovered that he has AML, a form of blood cancer.
AML is characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal cells that build up in the bone marrow and blood, thus interfering with the normal blood cell production.
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 32 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.
