We are Anthony Nolan
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.

For Volunteers Week, we’re sharing the story of Baiba – one of our amazing volunteers, who’s responsible for analysing our lifesaving spit kits as they come in from donors across the UK.
Amanda had a stem cell transplant when she was 16. She spoke to Billie in the patient services team about her experiences.
Warren is part of a very exclusive club – the two-time lifesavers who’ve given both a stem cell and a bone marrow donation. Here, he shares his story.
Matthew had his transplant in 2015 when he was 20 years old, after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). He spoke to Billie in the Anthony Nolan Patient Services team about his experiences.
