Delete Blood Cancer


About Delete Blood Cancer DKMS:

For nearly 13,000 patients fighting a blood or bone marrow disease every year, a bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor is the only chance for survival. Delete Blood Cancer DKMS is dedicated to facilitating successful bone marrow donations for these patients in need and encouraging people to register as potential bone marrow donors. Currently, we have registered over 5 million potential lifesavers worldwide and more than 49,000 of those registrants have gone on to make a life-saving bone marrow donation.

What We Do:

For over a decade, Delete Blood Cancer DKMS has sought to fight the myths and misconceptions of bone marrow donation and spread awareness of the need for more donors. We lead the fight against blood cancer by working with families, communities and organizations to recruit donors and provide more patients with second chances at life. By encouraging people to register as potential donors, Delete Blood Cancer DKMS helps increase the chances for patients all over the world to receive the transplants they need. 

Why You Should Get Involved:

Approximately every 3 minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Blood cancers are the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. This term refers to a leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. This does not include the dozens of other blood and bone marrow conditions that can be treated with a bone marrow transplant. For many patients, a transplant is their best option for survival, and while one third of patients can find a match in their family, 70% will have to rely on an unrelated donor. The more people register, the greater the chances for a patient searching for a donor match. You can help change one patient's story and provide hope for every one relying on a transplant from an unrelated donor.

How You Can Get Involved: 

Take action today! There are many ways in which you can help us further our mission to facilitate more transplants for patients in need.
  • Register: You can register as a potential donor at a local donor drive or go to DeleteBloodCancer.org to register.
  • Host a drive: Any group or individual can host a donor registration drive with us. We work with patients and their families, colleges, businesses and other organizations to host registration and awareness events around the country, and we always provide updates when someone you registered matches a patient and goes on to donate. 
  • Fundraise: It costs Delete Blood Cancer $65 to register each new donor, so we rely on financial contributions to continue registering as many people as possible.
  • Volunteer: You can devote your time to making a difference by volunteering at a drive or event in your area!
