Claudia Caruajal Corredor's three daughters are the center of her world. One afternoon after a full day, Claudia noticed that she was running out of energy quicker. After a visit to her doctor in early 2013, Claudia received news that would change her life forever. She was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. She has gone through several chemotherapy treatments with her girls right by her side. But now, she needs a bone marrow transplant to keep living. Patients are more likely to find a match in a donor of their same ethnic background. Since Hispanic Americans only make up 10% of the national donor registry, Claudia faces steeper odds in finding her match. #GetSwabbed today for patients like Claudia. #HispanicHeritage #BeTheMatch #DeleteBloodCancer #DKMS #BeatCancer #Leukemia #HHM
Team Margot announces the International Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Awareness Day. Two years ago in October 2013, 14-month-old Margot Martini was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of blood cancer, and required a bone marrow transplant to survive. Family and friends came together as Team Margot to raise awareness of Margot's plight and others desperately seeking a blood stem cell donor match. Unfortunately, Margot's Leukemia was extremely aggressive. She relapsed during the summer and passed away on October 27th, 2014. Today we celebrate her life and encourage YOU to #GetSwabbed today. #DeleteBloodCancer #DKMS #GetSwabbed #BoneMarrowDay #BoneMarrowDonor #TeamMargot #Register4Margot #JustOneMore #TagYourFriendsToRegister
We're excited to announce our partnership with Henry Schein Cares, the global corporate social responsibility program of Henry Schein, Inc. the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners. This collaboration follows successful donor registration projects with state dental associations that was sparked by one Michigan dentist, Dr. Steven Conlon.
Did you know a patient’s likelihood of finding a matching bone marrow donor ranges from 66% to 97% depending on race and ethnicity? When it comes to matching human leukocyte antigen (HLA) types, a patient is more likely to find a donor from the same racial or ethnic background. Because HLA markers used in matching are inherited, a person’s best chance of finding a donor may be with someone who shares a similar ancestry. Hispanic Americans only make up 10 percent of the national registry. #GetSwabbed today to help patients find their match. #HHM #hispanicheritagemonth #DeleteBloodCancer #DKMS #HLA #Genes
