Being African Caribbean means many things. A love of life, food and music and a rich, deep history. Unfortunately, it also means, if you have blood cancer, you might die waiting for a transplant. Because there currently aren’t enough African Caribbean people on the Anthony Nolan register, if you desperately need a transplant you have less than a 20% chance of finding the best match.That’s not right. But YOU can help change that...
Orin, ACLT founder
Together we can save more lives. Together we’re stronger. Everyone needs to be part of making a lifesaving difference, whether you join the register or spread the word. If a person of Caribbean descent needs a lifesaving stem cell transplant their only chance of finding a matching donor will usually be from someone of the same ethnicity. That’s why we need you to join us.
Telling our stories could help save someone’s life and we’ve been joined by some big names to celebrate what being African Caribbean means – as well as showing why we desperately need more people to join the Anthony Nolan register.
