We are Marrow, and we’re a pretty special bunch of students. At 40 universities up and down the UK, plus another seven abroad, we help Anthony Nolan save the lives of people with blood cancer.
Being students means we can help in a way others can’t. You see, the best donors are young people. And we recruit 10,000 of them each year, making up a quarter of all people who donate.
We also raise money – tons of it. In 2012 alone, we raised £145,000 – enough for Anthony Nolan to recruit 900 potential lifesavers.
We’re proud of what we do. With your help, we can do more. So if you’re a student, join Marrow today.
In 1998, a University of Nottingham student called Karen was told she had leukaemia, and that a bone marrow transplant was her only chance.
Sadly, Karen never found a match and she passed away.
Karen’s friend James Kustow and a group of student doctors set up Marrow in her honour to help others find that precious match. In the 15 years since, we’ve recruited more than 30,000 potential lifesavers.
