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!

Recently, Kyle donated to a patient in need of a bone marrow transplant.  He donated through the PBSC (peripheral blood stem cell) collection method. During the procedure, blood is drawn through one arm and passed through a machine that filters out the blood stem cells. The remaining blood is returned through your other arm. 
Thank you Kyle for providing a patient with a second chance at life. Follow in his footsteps and join the national bone marrow registry: dkms.org/register #dkms #DeleteBloodCancer #GetSwabbed #bonemarrowdonor #bonemarrowtransplant  #fightcancer

We are saddened to hear of the passing of DiMantae Bronaugh. We featured his story snd search for a bone marrow donor earlier this year. DiMantae, a high school football star, fought hard against leukemia, and was active in registering potential bone marrow donors, in hopes of finding a match for himself and other patients in need. We send condolences to his friends and family.
