Thank you for requesting a swab kit from DKMS!
You’re just one step away from being a registered bone marrow donor and that’s awesome. Here’s what you need to do:
If you still have your kit, swab your cheeks and send it back to us in the pre-paid envelope.
Don’t have your kit? No problem. We can send you a new one
Have questions, that’s ok too. We’re here to help. Just send us an email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you’re thinking.
We’re excited to welcome you as a registered bone marrow donor and look forward to receiving your kit!
Heston was diagnosed in January 2016 with Schwachman-Diamond Syndrome, a disease that can lead to leukemia and bone marrow failure. The need for a bone marrow transplant for Heston is becoming more urgent, and there are no current matches for him. While his condition is getting more serious, his outlook and strength are very strong.
In July 2018, Marley was diagnosed with aplastic anaemia and doctors say his best chance of survival is to have a bone marrow transplant. A search of the registry has returned no matches for Marley. Now, his family is campaigning to find #MarrowforMarley in the hope of finding him a matching blood stem cell donor.
DKMS is the world’s largest bone marrow donor center with more than 9 million registered donors, more than 80,000 of whom have helped save lives by donating marrow or peripheral blood stem cells. Within the U.S., DKMS has registered more than 1 million donors and facilitated over 3,900 donations.
