Anthony's Journey

Anthony Daniels didn't know how much strength he had until being strong was the only option.

In 2011, Anthony was attending Fordham University and playing collegiate ice hockey when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Anthony fought the cancer into remission twice over the next two years – all while continuing his studies.

In 2013, when his cancer returned for the third time, Anthony learned that his best hope for survival was a bone marrow transplant. No matching donor was found in his family or on the bone marrow registry. While searching for a match, Anthony began training as a boxer as a way to motivate himself, focusing on getting strong and competing in the ring. “It really helped me emotionally, physically and mentally,” Anthony explained.

Sometimes he headed straight to the gym from his chemotherapy treatments. "It was really hard but afterwards, I'd be tougher,” he said. “I was able to deal with the nausea.” Anthony fought his cancer in and out of the ring to help himself and inspire other patients to never give up.

I made a choice, a choice that has changed my life, I chose to be strong.

Recently, Anthony learned that his lymphoma has spread. He is exploring a treatment option that will help build his immunity so that in the next 6-12 months, he will be strong enough for a transplant.

But a matching donor must be found in order for him to survive past 12 months.

Despite this setback, Anthony is more determined than ever to keep fighting. His mission is to raise awareness and to register as many new potential donors as he can to help find a match that could give him – and others patients like him – a second chance at life.

I want to sign up for Anthony!

*****Question of the Week***** In the rare event that you are called to donate to a patient in need, you may need to travel to one of our transplant centers. We work with a number of hospitals across the country. DKMS arranges and covers the costs for travel and accommodations. In most cases, you will donate at the same facility where you will have your physical exam. If your employer does not provide paid time off for donation, DKMS has a financial assistance program for lost wages compensation.

*****Question of the Week**** We'd love it if everyone could donate. The medical guidelines, which include age restrictions, have been established to protect the safety of the donor and provide the best possible outcome for the patient. With age comes a small increase in the risk of side effects from anesthesia. Additionally, research shows that cells from younger donors lead to more successful outcomes for patients. 
Even if you can't sign up as a potential donor, there's lot of other ways to join the fight.
