About Anthony Nolan
Every 20 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukaemia. Blood cancers and disorders are indiscriminate and can affect anyone at any time. For many; a blood stem cell or bone marrow transplant is their only hope of survival. In order to have a successful transplant, a donor needs to be found who matches the tissue type of the patient. This is where Anthony Nolan comes in; they are the only UK charity who can find a transplant for someone with blood cancer. They match patients with donors through their register, to facilitate three potentially lifesaving transplants every day.
Here's a little about their lifesaving work:
Join the Anthony Nolan register
Sign up to the Anthony Nolan register and you could be a lifesaving match for someone with blood cancer.
If you're aged between 16 - 30 and in good health, you can sign up to the Anthony Nolan register (you'll stay on it until you turn 60). Whenever a patient with blood cancer or a blood disorder needs a lifesaving stem cell transplant, they search their register, looking for someone who is a genetic match for that patient. If you're a match, Anthony Nolan will be in touch, and they'll ask you to donate if you're still healthy and happy to do so.
