For someone with blood cancer or a blood disorder, a stem cell transplant from a matching donor could be their last chance of survival.
What do we do?
We’re saving lives right now. Three lives a day, in fact.
Anthony Nolan is the charity that makes lifesaving connections between patients in need and incredible strangers ready to donate their stem cells.
We're giving families a future by:
- Growing the stem cell register with donors aged 16–30 – research shows younger donors improve outcomes
- Carrying out groundbreaking research to improve survival rates and life after transplant
- Providing the best post-transplant care for people affected by transplant. If you are going through a transplant and need support, we’re here for you.
