What we do

Anthony Nolan saves and improves the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders.

By making lifesaving connections between patients and incredible strangers, ready to donate their stem cells.

By funding ground-breaking research that could transform the future for more patients.

By providing the best experience for every patient before, during and after transplant.

Anthony Nolan's lifesaving legacy

Anthony Nolan needed a stem cell transplant to save his life. Our work is his legacy. Shirley Nolan, Anthony’s mum, launched the world’s first stem cell register in 1974. Her pioneering work is what we continue today, giving families affected by blood cancer and blood disorders a second chance of life.

Your support saves lives.

Every 14 minutes, someone is diagnosed with blood cancer.
You can help give them a second chance of life.
