Register to save a life!

You’ve never met. But, for someone who’s facing blood cancer, you might just be the most important person in the world.

Every 20 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer, such as leukaemia. It’s a devastating diagnosis for anyone affected. But, there’s hope: a potentially lifesaving blood stem cell donation from a genetically similar person.

Only one in three people will find a matching donor within their own family. And so they must find an unrelated donor to have a second chance of life. That’s why we’re here. We find potential lifesavers, like you, and match them to people in urgent need of a blood stem cell donation.

It’s especially hard for people who are black, Asian, or belong to another minority ethnicity to find a match because there are relatively few potential donors of these ethnicities on the UK donor registry.

We’re here to give everyone the best possible chance of overcoming blood cancer. But, whatever your ethnicity, we need your help. Will you go on standby to save the life of someone just like you? Complete our pre-registration check to find out if you could be a potential lifesaver and order your home swab kit today.

Register today. There are survivors because there are lifesavers.
