Help Riya Campaign

A pupil at DMS is desperately ill.

Riya Dandekar is just 21 years old

and was diagnosed with a rare type

of blood cancer called Anaplastic

Lymphoma on March 10th this

year. She performed at our concert

at symphony hall on 16th!

Riya has been bed ridden following

numerous cycles of chemotherapy,

leaving her weak and exhausted.

Riya’s parents, both in the medical

profession have told us of the

struggle that is now upon them after

every door has closed the only

option for Riya is a stem cell


Leigh has contacted the BBC and Midlands today will be covering the story. Leigh is also organising a DMS Help Riya campaign asking everyone to register and be tested to see if there could be a possible stem cell match for her.

It’s easy to register and a tester kit will be delivered to your home which is simply taking a mouth swab!

DMS will also have open sessions every Tuesday for the month of August between 4 and 6pm where ANYONE can come along and register or if you have your tester pack already be tested there and then.

It's easy, pain free and could save Riya or other lives.

You Can Help To join a bone marrow register:

1. Give a spit sample if you are aged 16 -30

0303 303 0303

2. Give a mouth swab if you aged 18- 55
