On Campus...

It's a fact: Young people are often the best donors for patients fighting blood cancer. When you are in the "prime of your life," it's also the best time to help save a life.

That's why we team up with students like you to hold more bone marrow donor registration drives at campuses across the country - to add more young people to our list of potential lifesavers. Just look at the difference our college students have made:

Over 1,500 Campus drives
Over 167,000 New potential lifesavers registered
Over 500 Matches found
** Over 600** Donations to patients in need of transplants

See all our upcoming college drives!

Our ambassadors work on campus to build a team of dedicated volunteers, raise awareness, recruit students and faculty to join the bone marrow donor registry and raise funds to help make more life-saving transplants possible.

***Please share Brickelle's story and help patients who are fighting rare disorders like Brickelle today by registering to be a potential bone marrow donor at dkms.org/register.*** Meet Brickelle! Brickelle is a six-year-old Tennesse native. The energetic and enthusiastic Tennessean has been fighting Shwachman–Diamond syndrome (SDS) since she was 3 ½ years old. Having this rare congenital disorder means many parts of the body, but particularly the bone marrow, pancreas, and skeletal system, are severely affected. 
Brickelle's Dad Mark says
