For someone with blood cancer or a blood disorder, a stem cell transplant from a matching donor could be their last chance of survival.
Antony Nolan are currently looking for volunteers aged 16–30 to apply to join their stem cell register, where you’ll be ready and waiting as an amazing stranger who could save someone’s life.
If you’re male or from a minority ethnic background then you can make an even bigger difference as these donors are needed most.
Sign up to the Anthony Nolan stem cell register and one day come up as a genetic match, you could be that amazing stranger. Without you, there is no cure.
Research shows that younger donors provide better outcomes for patients, and so the recruitment age range of 16-30 means they can focus on recruiting the best possible donors.
Simply complete the online application form to check that you’re eligible and in good health to donate.
Once your application is approved, you will be sent a swab pack in the post for you to complete and return so that your tissue type can be checked before adding you to the register.
You’ll get an email and donor card in the post when your application is complete. If you haven’t already, this is the time to let the world know you’re #LifesaverReady!
Jacob, a stem cell donor said: ‘It’s amazing to know that I’ve been part of something that has had such a big impact on someone’s life. And it’s so easy!’
