Patient Engagement

Welcome to the DKMS family! We are here for you and your family and committed to being your support system through this difficult journey with you.

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." - Helen Keller

At this point, you have received the news that you or someone close to you has been diagnosed with a blood cancer or disorder. Patients often need time to accept the news, and the help of family and friends is often a source of encouragement and support.

Over the next few weeks, you will go through many emotions. During this time, you will need to develop your own methods for coping based on your situation, however, while you do, it is important to remember that there are ample resources and people to lean on who can assist you through this journey.

DKMS works directly with patients, their families, and their communities to share, educate, and encourage others to register as potential donors: the first step in providing a second chance at life for our patients. Each story and journey is unique, and we take great pride in providing a holistic personalised service for each patient and for their care-takers.

It is an honor to witness and contribute to the growth of support from the patient’s community and sharing the ultimate reward from these efforts: an opportunity for patients around the world to celebrate more birthdays, anniversaries and life experiences. We look forward to supporting you and your loved ones to raise awareness, register new potential life-saving donors and provide more hope to more patients in need of a transplant.
