DKMS-BMST is organizing an online musical concert #MusicForLife to mark National Cancer Awareness Day

 



DKMS-BMST, a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against blood cancer and other blood disorders, is organizing a live musical concert #MusicForLife with an aim to create awareness on the importance of registering as a potential blood stem cell donor. 



Music For Life is an initiative by DKMS-BMST in collaboration with four talented musicians of India who through their music will bring hope and joy to patients fighting blood cancer and other blood disorders. 

 


The concerts kickstarted on November 7th  and will continue every Saturday throughout the month of November (14th, 21st and 28th Nov) at 5 PM on their Instagram channel https://www.instagram.com/dkms_bmst_in , where four renowned music artists namely Raghu Dixit, Stebin Ben, Harish Moyal and Manasi Scott will be performing and they will also be interacting with blood cancer patients and survivors.




“With everyone being stuck indoors, we all have found more than enough ways to spend our time doing various things during the lockdown or quarantine period. But, amidst the Corona pandemic, we should not forget that there are still lakhs of patients in India who are suffering from blood disorders and they need our support. I feel proud to perform during #Musicforlife live concert organized by DKMS-BMST for such a noble cause, the pain these patients go through is unimaginable and if I can bring smile to them through my music, there’s nothing better than that during this festive season” says Stebin Ben, the new sensational singer, who is winning hearts with his latest releases which are ruling the charts currently.



Blood cancer accounts for 8% of all new cases of cancer diagnosed in India. Many patients suffering from blood cancer and other blood disorders need a blood stem cell transplant to survive. Every year over 70,000 new searches are initiated worldwide for an unrelated matching donor.  Unfortunately, the majority of patients are never able to receive a transplant due to the unavailability of a matching blood stem cell donor. In India, only 0.03% of the total population is registered as a potential blood stem cell donor.  Hence, through this collaboration, we urge people to join the fight against blood cancer in India by registering as potential blood stem cell donors, added Patrick.
