Marrow

Every year, thousands of people worldwide with diseases like leukaemia reach a stage in their illness where their only hope of survival is a bone marrow stem cell transplant.  Sometimes a family member makes a good donor, but when they don't, doctors must turn to a register of people who are willing to donate their stem cells. 

As Marrow we organise clinics where any student can do something remarkable and join the bone marrow register. We also work together to spread the word that someone like you can be a lifesaver. We'd love to meet you to chat about joining the register. 
 
If you want to be more involved you can be one of our counsellors and/or help fundraise for our parent charity Anthony Nolan which matches donors to people who need a transplant.
 
As one or our trained volunteers/counsellors you will inform students about the medical issues regarding stem cell transplants and ensure everyone signing up is fully aware of what it involves. The training is quick and simple and you will be fully supported by our friendly members until you're confident. Join our facebook group to see when the next training sessions are. 
 
We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers and you can be as involved and busy you like, no pressure.
