Just the facts

Every year in the UK, 2,000 people need a stem cell transplant from a volunteer donor. Amazingly enough, that transplant could cure their blood cancer or blood disorder – and give them a second chance of life.

That’s what we do at Anthony Nolan.

  • We recruit people aged 16-30 to our register, and if they come up as a match, we facilitate their donation to a patient in need.
  • We raise vital funds, with the help of our friends and supporters, to invest in recruiting more donors and finding the best possible matches. 
  • We conduct groundbreaking research in our laboratories, making stem cell transplants safer and better than ever before.
  • We support people with blood cancer and blood disorders before, during and after their transplants – and help their families and loved ones, too.

We’re driven to cure blood cancer – and with your help, we can do even more.
