Become a donor

The Story

In 2019, Veer three was sadly diagnosed with Fanconi Anaemia, a rare genetic disease. As a result, his bone marrow does not function properly. His family have been told that his best hope of survival is a blood stem cell transplant.

Unfortunately Veer’s sister, the most likely family member to be a good match was found not to be. So the family must look to the stem cell register for an unrelated donor.

Currently only 2% of the UK population are registered as potential blood stem cell donors, and just 13% come from minority ethnic backgrounds. Patients from the BAME community also have just a 20% chance of finding a stem cell donor compared to 69% from those of a Northern European background.

Let’s change these statistics together and change lives. Every donor could make the difference. You could make a difference.

If you’re aged 17-55 and in general good health, request a swab kit to become a potential blood stem cell donor today.

If you are unable to register as a potential donor, we would be very grateful if you could consider making a contribution towards the cost of a registration.

Contribute Now

It costs us £40 to register a new donor on the UK stem cell registry. As a charity, we rely on monetary donations from the public to help cover this cost and greatly appreciate any contribution, no matter how big or small.
