Bad Hersfeld, 22, saved Canadian politicians - FFH.de

With his bone marrow donation, 22-year-old Bad Hersfelder Jonathan Kehl may have saved the life of Canadian minister Dominic LeBlanc. Only Kiehl found out who the bone marrow donation was until two years after the donation.

20,000 to 1

According to the DKMS, the probability of a suitable match is 1 in 20,000. Excitement grew when Kiehl found out whose life he had saved with his donation. “We Googled him and found more and more sites where he was written about or reported on,” Kehl says. In the end, he doesn’t care whose life he saved – he’s just glad he was able to help. And he did: LeBlanc is supposed to be fine. “You saved my life, I will be forever grateful to you” were the first words of the minister to Kehl from Canada in Bad Hersfeld. Since then, friendships have developed between the men: we regularly text each other or talk to each other over video conferences. LeBlanc invited him to come to Canada. He wanted to show them his homeland and also introduce him to the Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau.

doesn’t hurt and goes fast

Young Kiehl had already registered when he was still in school in 2018. “A campaign was conducted by DKMS, and I participated”. A year later, DKMS said he was probably the right bone marrow donor for a previously unknown patient in Canada. After further tests, the donation was made. “Get yourself registered with DKMS,” is the immediate appeal of Kiehl’s. The more participants participate, the greater the chances of saving lives around the world.
