ANTHONY NOLAN AND
WORLD CANCER DAY

World Cancer Day - 4 Feb 2017

At Anthony Nolan, we save the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders. On 4 February 2017, World Cancer Day returns as we unite together to build a future where every patient survives.

Wear a Unity Band® or donate by 4 February to show your support and help fund our lifesaving work. Unity Bands will be available online from January 2017, for a suggested donation of £2.

A DAY TO UNITE

Collaboration is at the heart of our work. We work with registries around the world to find the best possible match, and we work with other cancer charities here in the UK to make sure patients get the best possible care.

Find out more about our international reach and read the inspiring stories of people who have received stem cell transplants.

 

STEM CELLS AROUND THE WORLD

When a match can’t be found in the UK, we work with registries around the world to find a suitable donor. Wherever that person is, once they’ve donated their stem cells, they must be delivered in 72 hours.

Click below to find out more about the countries our incredible volunteer couriers visited in 2016 to collect stem cells and lymphocytes, and bring them back to patients here in the UK.
