September is
Blood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month, and this year we're celebrating our lifesaving community and asking you to join in.

Every 14 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. And when no other treatment works, a stem cell transplant can be a patient’s last chance of survival.

Anthony Nolan gives three people every day a second chance of life. By working together, we know we can do even more to support blood cancer patients. From heading out on a walk to emailing your MP, there are so many ways to get involved in Blood Cancer Awareness Month.


Join people across the country Walking Together in September with your own sponsored walk as part of our brand new event to raise lifesaving funds for Anthony Nolan.
