Every day, we match incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer and blood disorders who desperately need lifesaving transplants.
It all began in 1974. With her three-year-old son Anthony in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant, Shirley Nolan set up the world's first register to match donors with people in desperate need.
Now, we help three people each day find that lifesaving match.
We also conduct world-class research into stem cell matching and transplants, so we can make sure every person in need gets the best possible treatment.
To save the lives of everyone who needs a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.

See how we saved the lives of Ben, Lisa and Sorrel – and thousands of others.
Today, there are more than 480,000 potential donors on the Anthony Nolan register, giving hope to people in need of lifesaving bone marrow transplants.
