Support Birkan: Join us in London

Birkan is 31 years old and he was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma 10 years ago and has successfully overcome the disease twice! He has been told it could come back a third time and if it does, he will need to receive blood stem cells from a matching donor. He is more likely to find his matching donor from someone with a Turkish background.

Birkan said: "My beloved wife, family and friends are what I live for. I try to see a light in every situation and I believe it is my love of life and positive attitude that has helped me overcome cancer twice before. I am urging all those from a Turkish background to register as a potential blood stem cell donor".

Register as a blood stem cell donor and you could save a life. To find out if you are a matching donor for Birkan, or someone just like him, all it takes is a simple swab of the inside of your cheek and 15 minutes of your time. If you are in general good health, between the ages of 18-55 you can become a potential blood stem cell donor and pre-registration is possible from the age of 17.

We’re not stopping until we find a matching donor for every person in need!

Together against blood cancer.
