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

Founded in 1974 as the world’s first stem cell register, we’re motivated by a mother’s determination to save her son, Anthony.

Over 45 years later, three people a day are now given a second chance of life, thanks to generous funders and an ever-growing stem cell register. Our charity is a lifesaving legacy. 

By recruiting potential donors, funding ground-breaking research, and providing the best post-transplant care from our clinical nurses, we can cure people’s blood cancer together.
