About the charity
We are committed to increasing the number of potential blood stem cell donors in the UK, so that there is a donor for everyone who needs one.
Every 20 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. For many of those affected, a blood stem cell donation from a matching donor represents their best, and sometimes only, chance of beating this devastating disease.
