The DKMS Movement
25 years ago, DKMS was born from one family’s devoted mission to find a matching bone marrow donor for their beloved mother. Although ultimately losing his wife Mechtild to leukemia, Dr. Peter Harf has kept his promise to her to try and help every blood cancer patient find a matching donor. Today, DKMS is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the fight against blood cancer and blood disorders by: creating awareness; recruiting bone marrow donors to provide a second chance at life; raising funds to match donor registration costs; supporting the improvement of therapies through research; and supporting patients from day one of their diagnoses.
Together we can inspire millions more to get involved!
