Tim from London has non-hodgkin lymphoma

As Tim is adopted, he is entirely dependent on finding a suitable match from an unrelated donor

Tim is a kind, humble Londoner who had a successful career. Sadly in October 2016, his world was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with non-hodgkin lymphoma. Since then, he has had many ups and downs, including multiple bouts of chemotherapy. 

As Tim is adopted, he is entirely dependent on finding a suitable match from an unrelated donor. However, so far, a match has not been identified.

Tim has recently relapsed and has been told by doctors that his best chance of survival is to receive a blood stem cell transplant. 

“The only cure that is possible for my Stage 4B non-Hodgkin lymphoma, currently in remission as of March 2018, is an allograft with stem cells of a closely matched unrelated donor.

“Finding a donor is the only way forward for a potential cure. At the moment my disease is being controlled by Thalidomide. However, this is not a cure.”

Can you help change this?  

If you are between the ages of 17-55 and in good general health, register as a potential blood stem cell donor. Together, we can help Tim and others find the lifesaving match they need.  

If you are already registered please keep spreading the words about blood cancer and blood stem cell donation. Together we can save more lives!
