Patient and Donor Meeting


DKMS grants thousands of patients their one true wish: finding a matching bone marrow donor. The Awards Breakfast embraces our lifesaving mission by bringing together donors with the patients they saved. With your support, we can make more of these incredible moments possible. This year, bone marrow donor, Scott Price, and transplant recipient, Richard Rothman, will be meeting for the very first time.

In 2013, Rich, Senior Counsel of Weil, Gotshal & Manges in NYC, was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). In September of that year, Scott Price from Dallas, TX was notified that he was a perfect match for Rich. He agreed to donate his bone marrow and the transplant was a success! Thanks to Scott’s extraordinary generosity, Rich is back on the tennis court, fly fishing, and spending time with his wife, Melissa, and two kids.

This year marks the 5th anniversary of Scott’s lifesaving donation to Rich.
