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.
