Two Cotton Buds For One Life

HELUKABEL DKMS campaign against blood cancer


On October 17th, HELUKABEL staff had the chance to attend a recruitment event in Hemmingen to join the German Bone Marrow Donor Register (DKMS). Each new stem cell donor could potentially give a second chance at life to a blood cancer patient somewhere in the world. Cotton swabs were used to conduct a cheek swab to determine the tissue characteristics of the donor. HELUKABEL covered the costs of the laboratory analysis as well as all other costs associated with the event. 81 staff members added their support to DKMS fight against blood cancer by participating in the event.
