This week the 800,000th potential lifesaver was added to the Anthony Nolan register. This means that 800,000 people in the UK have committed to making themselves available if ever called on for a stranger in need. This fantastic achievement is possible only through the altruism of our supporters and to them we are eternally grateful.
Although it brings us closer to our target of finding a match for everyone who needs one, there is still a long way to go, especially when it comes to providing donors for an increasingly diverse population.
Henny Braund, Chief Executive of Anthony Nolan says: “This week we reached the milestone of 800,000 donors on the Anthony Nolan register.
This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the passion and commitment of our colleagues, supporters and volunteers, but most of all, the 800,000 selfless individuals who have chosen to join the register. Without you, there is no cure.”
