Sheffield Marrow is a part of the network of lifesaving students who work with the blood cancer charity, Anthony Nolan. There are over 50 Marrow groups, with hundreds of student volunteers (like us!) in universities across the country, who are all working towards one thing - saving the lives of people with blood cancer.
Every 14 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. For someone with blood cancer, a stem cell transplant could be their last chance of survival. At Anthony Nolan, we match incredible people willing to donate their stem cells, to people with blood cancer who are in desperate need of a lifesaving transplant.
Marrow now recruit one in four people who go on to donate stem cells, which means hundreds of lives are potentially saved by Marrow's incredible work.
It costs £40 to add each potential lifesaver to the stem cell register. Every penny and every pound that Sheffield Marrow raises will help to continue saving the lives of people with blood cancer.
Anthony Nolan is saving lives right now. Three lives a day, in fact. But we cant do it without you. Without you, there is no cure.
