Signing up to become a bone marrow donor can make a difference for someone’s life.
A bone marrow transplant can be the only chance of survival for many people with severe disease such as blood cancer.
As only 30% of the people who need a bone marrow transplant find a match within their family, having a diversified international bone marrow register can really make a difference for many people around the world.
In order to sign up, you’ll be asked to have a health check and saliva sample taken. You’ll be contacted if you have a match and you can donate either peripheral blood stem cells or bone marrow.
