Base Cares – Charity of the Month, February

This month’s #basecares donation is going to DKMS in memory of our Business & Planning Executive Jenny’s cousin Ben.

DKMS is an international charity dedicated to the fight against blood cancer and blood disorders.

“We recruit blood stem cell donors, provide second chances at life for those in need of a transplant, and raise funds to cover donor registration costs.

DKMS launched in the UK in 2013 and are the biggest stem cell register in the UK. They have registered over 900,000 blood stem cell donors to date and helped to give over 1,700 people a second chance at life.

Over 2,000 people each year in the UK are in need of a blood stem cell transplant, however, just 3% of the UK’s population are registered as potential donors. Only a tiny proportion of these potential donors are from minority ethnic communities.

That’s why the charity exists. The more people who register as blood stem cell donors, the better the chance for someone in need of a blood stem cell transplant.

To date, worldwide, DKMS has registered over 11 million potential blood stem cell donors, and over 100,000 second chances at life have been provided by DKMS.”
