We enable people with blood cancer to survive by finding them stem cell donors

Story

Someone inspired me to do this challenge! Through all the tough times, they stayed so positive! 

Every day, Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with a blood cancer or blood disorder. We do this by matching incredible individuals willing to donate their stem cells to people who desperately need a lifesaving transplant. We also carry out cutting edge scientific research, fund specialist post-transplant nurses and support patients and their families through the transplant process and beyond. We won’t stop until we save the lives of everyone who needs a stem cell transplant. Every penny you donate brings us closer to that day.

 £40 could add a new lifesaver to our register.
This includes the cost of recruiting a donor, collecting and analysing each new donor’s sample to work out their tissue type. We then securely store the donor’s tissue type on our register so we can search for them as a match for someone with blood cancer. Each new donor on our register could mean the chance of life for someone with blood cancer. 

£30 could pay for an hour of a specialist post-transplant nurse’s time.
Our nurses are in Transplant Centres across the country, and can offer invaluable support to our patients and their families after a transplant.

£15 goes a long way to helping our scientists conduct ground breaking research.

We research into how to make transplants as successful as possible, including how we can make the best matches between people in need of transplants and potential donors, and how to stop life-threatening complications after a transplant.

£5 could get vital information to patient and their family.

Life after a transplant comes with its own set of challenges. We offer a range of information booklets to help patients and families to cope post transplant.
