On 12th May 2015, Hayleigh (a community nurse working in Aberdeenshire) celebrated International Nurses Day with a difference – by donating her stem cells to a complete stranger. Today, in the run-up to International Nurses Day 2017, she’s sharing her amazing story.
David’s stem cell donation took place in April 2017 – and he’s kindly shared his story to encourage more people to join the Anthony Nolan register. Read on!
In 1984, Sara Davies was asked to donate her stem cells to a complete stranger – Catherine Naylor. It was a historic moment, because it was the first time anyone had attempted to treat Catherine’s illness (chronic myeloid leukaemia) with a stem cell transplant.
More than 30 years on, Sara’s daughter Kate is doing something incredible; raising lifesaving funds for Anthony Nolan. Here, she kindly shares the amazing inter-generational story:
After registering with the British Bone Marrow Registry, Sam was a match for a patient in the autumn of 2016, and donated his stem cells to give them a second chance of life. Here, he shares his amazing story.
Earlier this year, Lucy donated her stem cells to give a second chance of life to someone with blood cancer. She’s very kindly shared her story with us to bust the myths and encourage others to sign up.
Danny Keeling is 25 years old, and a Front Desk Agent at Ace Hotel in Shoreditch. Last year, after registering as an Anthony Nolan stem cell donor, Danny learned that he had been selected as a match for someone with blood cancer – and after donating, he was inspired to raise lifesaving funds for our cause with a series of Pride in London events.
