**Amanda donated to save a life**
Amanda registered in the summer of 2010 in hopes of potentially saving a life. In 2016, she learned that she was a potential match for a patient in need. After several rounds of medical exams to ensure she was the best match, Amanda was able to donate via Peripheral Blood Stem Cell (PBSC) Donation. PBSCis the donation method used in 75% of cases. It is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure that collects blood stem cells via the bloodstream. During the procedure, blood is drawn through one arm and passed through a machine that filters out the blood stem cells. The remaining blood is returned to through the other arm. The actual donation can take from 4-8 hours over the course of 1-2 days. The blood stem cells replenish within a few weeks.Amanda had this to say about her experience: "No matter what I have to endure, the recipients have to go through so many different trials and tribulations. They're so tough and strong to have to go through this. I am more than willing to stand beside them and be strong with them."

Thank you Amanda, for giving someone a second chance at life. You can do so as well by signing up as a potential bone marrow donor at dkms.org/register.

Surron will need a bone marrow transplant in order to have the best shot at life. Please visit dkms.org/register to sign up to be her potential lifesaver.
A 12-year Katy area resident, Surron Stokes, 46, recently learned that her battle with leukemia isn't over and she needs a bone marrow transplant. In February, Jerrod, 24, the middle of her three sons, who are 20 to 25 in age, is scheduled to donate stem cells to help his mother in her fight, but he's only a 50 percent match. DKMS conducted a Dec. 31 bone marrow/blood stem cell registration drive at her church, God's Temple of Praise Community ...

Candice Peak is a Boston resident, a fitness instructor, and an athlete at heart. She spent most of her college years running, cycling, and swimming.

"Being in shape and staying healthy has always been important me. I decided to register as a bone marrow donor because I wanted the opportunity to share that gift with someone else. The entire experience was amazing and is something that I would do it over and over again. Sometimes all someone needs is a little hope to continue the fight."

****Question of the Week***

We'd love it if everyone could donate. The medical guidelines, which include age restrictions, have been established to protect the safety of the donor and provide the best possible outcome for the patient. With age comes a small increase in the risk of side effects from anesthesia. Additionally, research shows that cells from younger donors lead to more successful outcomes for patients.

Even if you can't donate, there's lot of other ways to join the fight. If you are still interested in getting involved by hosting a drive, setting up a Facebook fundraiser or volunteering, please visit: dkms.org/help

Question of the Week

In the rare event that you are called to donate to a patient in need, you may need to travel to one of our transplant centers. We work with a number of hospitals across the country. DKMS arranges and covers the costs for travel and accommodations. In most cases, you will donate at the same facility where you will have your physical exam. If your employer does not provide paid time off for donation, DKMS has a financial assistance program for lost wages compensation.

To learn more about what happens the day of your donation please visit: dkms.org/match
