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.
Love Your Melon is honored to partner with DKMS in 2019 and will be providing $25,000 to help support the fees associated with registering new donors. This funding will specifically support DKMS’s goal to register more young male donors, which is currently the group most likely to ensure a successful transplant. We are also happy to announce that DKMS will be establishing a partnership with Love Your Melon’s Campus Crew programs in 2019. The Campus Crews will help host swab drives and register donors to DKMS across the United States.
