For people with leukaemia and other blood cancers, a stem cell transplant can often be their last chance & it can be lifesaving for them.
They first look to their family members for a donor but unfortunately, 70% do not find one. Therefore, they need complete strangers who are on the Anthony Nolan register to be a lifesaving match for them.
At the moment, only 60% of people are able to find a match and this reduces to just 20% if the person is from an ethnic minority background. To increase these chances of finding a match, we need more people on the register, so come along to one of our events and help us sign more people up.
Signing each of those people up costs £40 so we raise money to help the charity to do this, as well as support patients and donors throughout their journey.
