Every year, 2,000 people with blood cancer or a blood disorder find themselves with just one chance left to survive: a lifesaving stem cell transplant. Our charity is working hard to make sure nobody dies waiting for a transplant and that their survival and quality of life are the best they can possibly be.

But we can’t do this without your support.

Deb's story

When Deb received a life-threatening leukaemia diagnosis in 2010, it seemed to come out of nowhere.

‘I was a healthy weight and I was swimming 100 lengths a day so I was really fit, didn’t smoke, didn’t drink alcohol to excess.’

Suddenly, her life was at risk. She urgently needed a stem cell transplant to survive. Anthony Nolan was able to find her a stem cell donor match, in order to save her life. Today, it’s enabled her to see her grandchildren, return to work and get back to worrying about the little things:

‘Sometimes, I look in the mirror and think “oh I’m all wrinkled now”. But to have those small worries again rather than wondering “Will today be the day I die?”, it’s fantastic.’

Sadly, not everyone finds the match they need, like Deb did. Our charity urgently needs your help to fund the search for lifesaving donors and give more people a chance of life.

Without your support, there is no cure.
