DKMS LIFE, founded in 1995 in Germany, is a non-profit organization and a 100% subsidiary of DKMS. The main focus of DKMS LIFE is to give new hope and confidence to cancer patients to support them during their treatment and positively impact their healing process.
Giving hope and confidence to cancer patients during therapy
Our 'look good feel better' patient program provides valuable help for cancer patients during their therapy and motivates them to face cancer with confidence. We support cancer patients in rediscovering their love of life during this difficult time. It is especially the exchanges between patients, the laughter and carefree hours they share that give participants in the program new joy and confidence.
The idea behind the program is simple: It’s all about feeling better. Feeling good strengthens self-esteem, which in turn enhances the healing process and health as a whole. This is where DKMS LIFE comes in. The patient program teaches make-up and beauty techniques to women undergoing cancer treatment and helps them to conceal any visible side effects of their cancer treatment.
It is crucial to us to give as many cancer patients as possible a new quality of life. We pour all our energy into providing them with the courage and confidence they need to battle the disease.
