Ellis and Claire website


26 year old rugby player Ellis Joseph is searching for his matching donor.

Could you, or someone you know, help give someone like Ellis a second chance of life?

Ellis was admitted to intensive care after receiving a shock diagnosis of AML (Acute Myeloid Leukaemia). He began a course of chemotherapy and doctors told Ellis and his family he will now need a stem cell transplant and a search has begun to find him a match on the stem cell registry.

Make a donation

A gift of £5 a month helps build a stem cell register that gives everyone the best chance of survival.

A gift of £10 a month helps lifesaving transplants to happen – giving as many people like Ellis as possible a second chance of life.

A gift of £15 a month could help pay for our umbilical cord collection programme – making little lifesavers of babies only minutes old!

£15 goes a long way to helping our scientists conduct ground-breaking research that will save lives over the next 50 years.

£40 could sign up a new lifesaving stem cell donor who could go on to save a life like Ellis's.

£90 could pay for three hours of invaluable support from a post-transplant nurse for patients and families.


This is why it’s vital that anyone aged between 16 and 30 considers registering as a potential stem cell donor.
