DKMS US says
Join us for a celebration of hope and life, and help us fund the addition of over 600 potential bone marrow donors.

Since 2011, more than 194,000 Texans have registered as potential lifesavers, and 171 have given patients second chances at life. Each year the Breakfast raises crucial funds in support of these efforts.

The event honors our local Texas heroes during a coffee reception, seated breakfast program and awards ceremony.

This year's honorees are:

Lauren Stock-Youth Leader & Educator
Lauren Stock has made it her personal mission to raise awareness about blood cancer and bone marrow donation since her mother received a lifesaving transplant in 2009. Through her program High School Heroes, Lauren educates students and helps to register eligible 18-year olds to become potential bone marrow donors.

Danielle Stephens-Bone Marrow Transplant Recipient & DKMS Advocate
Danielle Stephens received a lifesaving bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with MDS/AML, a rare form of blood cancer. In their search for a donor, Danielle and her community added thousands of people to the national registry. Since her transplant, Danielle has continued to work tirelessly to raise funds and awareness around bone marrow donor registration — all in an effort to save more lives.

Kent Bickley, Brandi Kamper, Jessica & James Novak-Fort Worth Police Department Supporters of Patient Hallie Barnard
Fort Worth Police Officers have rallied around young patient Hallie Barnard, who suffers from a rare blood disorder called Diamond-Blackfan anemia. The FWPD and the Officers’ Wives Association have organized drives to register potential bone marrow donors, raise awareness and educate the community.
