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!
If you were following our coverage of the Virgin Money London Marathon last year, you might have seen a striking image. An Anthony Nolan runner, more than halfway through his 26.2 miles, practically bouncing up and down with energy, biceps clenched to the sky.
You might not have realised the incredible story behind that image – Eugene’s story. And here he tells it for the very first time.
In today’s blog, Richard Davison tells us about his sister Rachael, who needs a stem cell transplant – and talks about the incredible things the entire family have been doing to raise awareness and funds for Anthony Nolan.
In late 2015, Luke donated his stem cells to give a complete stranger the chance of life.
In today’s blog, he talks about his experiences of donating – and explains why he’s supporting Anthony Nolan this World Cancer Day.
Last year, Karen received a call from the British Bone Marrow Registry, letting her know that she was a match for a patient with blood cancer. There was just one problem – she had a serious phobia when it came to blood.
In her funny and inspiring blog, she talks about her experiences of stem cell donation, the support she received from Anthony Nolan, and why it’s so important to sign up as a donor.
At Anthony Nolan, we recruit lifesavers – with a register of more than 550,000 people in the UK, all of them ready and waiting to donate stem cells or bone marrow to a patient in need.
But once you’re on the register, how likely are you to actually donate? In this blog, we explain the facts.
