Anthony Nolan Trust Donation
We are Anthony Nolan
Every day, we match incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer and blood disorders who desperately need lifesaving transplants.
It all began in 1974. With her three-year-old son Anthony in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant, Shirley Nolan set up the world’s first register to match donors with people in desperate need.
Now, we help three people each day find that lifesaving match.
We also conduct world-class research into stem cell matching and transplants, so we can make sure every person in need gets the best possible treatment.
Every 14 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. For many of these people a stem cell transplant is their only hope of survival. With your support, we can give patients a second chance of life and keep more families together.
