In Germany, a person is diagnosed with blood cancer every 12 minutes, and worldwide every 27 seconds. Numbers that are backed up by people. Many of them cannot survive without a life-saving stem cell donation. For this reason, Meyer & Meyer carried out an online typing campaign as part of the "Blood Transported" logistics initiative on the occasion of World Blood Cancer Day on May 28. Employees were able to order a registration kit free of charge on the Internet and have themselves included in the DKMS stem cell donor file. By registering, they give blood cancer patients the chance of a second life, because the donor file gives them the chance to find their genetic twin. "As part of "Blood Transported", we would like to support the important work of the DKMS with this campaign," explains board member Theresa Meyer. "Each and every individual can make a contribution to the fight against blood cancer by registering."

Logistics initiative "Blood transported"
The "Blood Transported" initiative is an association of companies from the logistics industry with a common goal: to actively support the fight against blood cancer and other diseases of the hematopoietic system - and to do so by becoming active ourselves! In addition to Meyer & Meyer, more than 30 logistics companies have already become part of the initiative since it was founded at the end of 2020.
