We are Leeds Marrow, a student-run branch of Anthony Nolan.
For many people with blood cancers such as leukaemia, a stem cell transplant is their last chance of life. For a transplant to be a success, they need to find the right match.
However, 70% of people who need a transplant are relying on finding a stranger who is a match, and 50% never find a match as a suitable donor isn't on the register.
To increase the chances of finding a match, we need more people on the register. This is where we come in!
We run recruitment events throughout the academic year at the University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett, and halls of residence in order to sign students up to the national Anthony Nolan bone marrow register. This involves taking a small saliva sample and filling in a basic medical form.
You can help save a life by joining the bone marrow register. Just pop into one of our recruitment events or contact us for more info.
