Today, DKMS is an international organization with a clear message: blood cancer knows no borders. It is this message that is behind DKMS’s increasing commitment to ensure patients in India, South Africa, and other developing regions of the world also have access to life-saving stem cell transplants. To celebrate its anniversary and mark the annual World Blood Cancer Day (WBCD), DKMS wants to raise awareness around its life-saving work among young people in particular, and encourage them to register as donors.
