Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders.
Every day, we match incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer who desperately need lifesaving transplants.
It all began in 1974 when the world’s first register of potential bone marrow donors was created by Anthony Nolan’s mother, Shirley, in the hope of finding a cure for the life-threatening blood disorder her son had been born with.
Today Shirley’s legacy lives on. Each day we save the lives of three people with blood cancer and have provided a total of over 13,000 lifesaving transplants.
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.
