Princess Beatrice was at a Jimmy Choo and DKMS cocktail evening fundraising event, London, UK – 12 Oct 2016. The princess is pictured with Venessa, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in February. Venessa has become part of a campaign ( a type of poster girl) with DKMS a delete blood cancer organization. Venessa was a special guest speaker encouraging people to register and become potential blood stem cell donor.
“DKMS’s key mission is to provide a suitable donor for every person in need of a blood stem cell donation. Every 20 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer, such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Blood stem cells from a matching donor could cure them and save their lives.
Blood cancers affect the production and function of your blood cells. For many blood cancer patients, a stem cell donation is their only chance of survival, but only half of the people diagnosed in the UK find a matching donor.
