Upping the battle against blood cancer

Chennai: To mark World Blood Cancer Day, DKMS BMST Foundation India, a non-profit organisation dedicated to fight against blood cancer and related disorders, organised a virtual event to raise awareness on the burden of blood cancer in India.

During the event, a 23-year-old blood cancer patient Jharkhand shared her story of battling blood cancer and appealed for a blood stem cell donation that can save her life.

She took this opportunity to also urge and motivate other people to register themselves as potential blood stem cell donors.

She is being treated in Delhi where doctors have recommended a blood stem cell transplant as the only treatment option for her.
