For many people suffering from a blood cancer, such as leukaemia, a blood stem cell transplant may be their last chance of life.
All blood cells originate in the bone marrow from the same type of cell, called a blood stem cell. A blood stem cell, or bone marrow, transplant can replace a damaged immune system in a person with blood cancer – but only if the donor’s cell type matches.
Currently, we can only find a matching donor for half the people who come to us in desperate need of a lifesaving transplant.
We want to provide a lifesaving transplant to every person with blood cancer who needs our help.
