DKMS – Every 20 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer such as Leukaemia, Lymphoma or Myeloma. (That is hard enough to contemplate! Here is the scary part that you may not realise) – Only around 30% of people with blood cancer find a matching donor within their family.
DKMS – was formed in 1991 in Germany, they have a stem cell donor registry containing 300,000 people who could possibly help others who are affected by blood cancers – would you also like to help? If so please visit their website for further information – https://www.dkms.org.uk/en
…Two new illustrations for the Fall 2017 issue of TulaneMed Magazine, published by the Tulane University School of Medicine.
The two images had to work together with a limited colour pallete even though the subject matter was significantly different as can be seen in the printed spread below.
The first ‘Brain Freeze’, accompanies an article on a new ThermoSuit to help in the aid of recovery for Stroke Patients.
The second, ‘Got Sunscreen?’, accompanies an article about a young medical student and his research and development of a gadget which uses LED light to detect whether there is enough sunscreen applied to your skin.
