Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Patient Pleads for More Bone Marrow Donors

In this video from DKMS US, 23-year-old Anthony Daniels talks about the importance of bone marrow donors.

Find out how the cells around the bone marrow can impact the success of transplant for lymphoma patients.

Anthony was fighting Hodgkin’s lymphoma for the fourth time when he was told that he needed a vital bone marrow transplant to survive.

At the time of filming, doctors hadn’t found a match for Anthony despite searching for more than a year. He hoped that by raising awareness of the disease and the need for bone marrow donors that he would encourage people to donate, hopefully finding a match for himself and helping other lymphoma patients in the process.

Since posting the video, Anthony beat lymphoma only to have it return for a fifth time. He explains on his Facebook page that he is devastated by the news but is staying positive and is looking into a more holistic route of treatment.
