‘They had already tested Kitty’s two siblings, who unfortunately were not a match, so an anonymous donor was the only option.’

When we heard there was a match it was a very powerful thing, I can’t put that heartfelt emotion into words.

It was a difficult time, as Kitty became incredibly frail from the treatment.

We put our complete trust in the consultants and specialist transplant...

'Here I am, donating my stem cells for Anthony Nolan in the hope of saving someone's life.

I wonder a lot about the recipient - all I can hope is that this gives them a chance to recover.

The injections I had the last few days have made me feel less than peachy, but it is nothing compared to how the recipient must be feeling.

Sign up if you can - it really is a great thing to do.

‘We wanted our wedding day to be a celebration of the last twelve months and how far we’ve come. A year ago we were told we might not get to this point!

'The week before my transplant was due to go ahead, we were told the donor had a cold or temperature and we may have to postpone it.

'At this point, I was about to have the drugs to destroy my bone marrow to make room for the donor’s cells,...

Since we shared the story of Myles, the 27-year-old dad and British Army private who urgently needs a stem cell donor, we've seen nearly 2,000 amazing people come forward to apply with us online.

It's genuinely incredible news. But we're still looking for that lifesaving match to treat Myles' leukaemia - and there are countless other people out there, still searching, just like him.

So...

‘Hazel’s had two bone marrow transplants. The fact that she’s still here brings tears to my eyes.

‘It truly has given her, and us, a second chance in life.

‘Our hearts can’t take the thanks.

‘Not just finding one donor, but a second donor from Germany. It’s amazing what Anthony Nolan do. All of the effort, time and money that goes in to Hazel’s treatment and care, at no cost or...

Andy Watt, of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, isn't just a lifesaver while he's in uniform.

In fact, he and his colleagues have been saving lives with us for the past 8 years.

Over 8,000 potential donors have been recruited at SFRS-run events - and 25 have already gone on to donate.

Meanwhile, the partnership has indirectly resulted in over £57,000 being raised, via supporters, staff...

'3.5 years ago, I spat in a test tube and was added to the Anthony Nolan register.

'I never thought I'd get the call, but I was over the moon when I did.

'I'm no hero, I'm terrified of needles. I threw up at least twice on the blood tests building up to the harvesting and felt faint every time and I'm not afraid to admit it!

'That said, it's the smallest price to pay to give someone a...

This is a true story. It’s the story of a second chance at life.

And it’s about an incredibly brave little girl called Hazel.

In October 2015, nobody knew what was wrong with Hazel – it might be meningitis, the doctors thought. She was just 18 months old, and she’d been sick all through the summer.

But what her parents and doctors didn’t realise was that Hazel was about to be diagnosed...

My first feeling was very much excitement - I'd have been happy to get hooked up to the machine that day!

The whole experience was great, from hearing you're a match through to donation. Anthony Nolan support you throughout.

I won't sugarcoat it, the GCSF injections did make my back sore and gave me...

'My son Haydan (in the middle of the picture) was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia when he was 2 years old.

He had a stem cell transplant in March 2013, alongside another year of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Haydan will be 11 in July which is a fantastic milestone, one he would never have achieved without the work that Anthony Nolan does.

Give yourself a massive round of applause.

Because, we know, Facebook can seem kind of trivial. It can feel like it's all about the holiday photos, the adverts, or the cat gifs (actually, we love those).

But it's also a place where lifesaving happens.

In fact, in 2016, we saw 19,000 people apply to join the Anthony Nolan register because they'd spotted a post about donating stem cells on...

'After my stem cell donation, I was wearing my Anthony Nolan T-shirt in the local DIY shop. As I walked in, a lady and gentleman in front looked around and smiled at me.

After a moment, the man came back and said,
"Oh, do you work for them?"

I said, "No, I’ve donated."

He shook my hand and said, "If it wasn’t for someone like you, my daughter wouldn’t be here."

I’d tell everyone to sign...

Elsa needs a match. Can you help get the word out?

Elsa is a wife and mum of two. And she’s been told that she urgently needs a stem cell transplant to have any hope of treating her acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

We know that Elsa’s donor is most likely to have Ethiopian or East African heritage, like her.

But that same heritage presents her with an incredibly serious challenge in...

'My bone marrow is now en route to save a life.

Ironically I am an anaesthetist, so it was all very surreal being on the other side!

Back home now after a surreal experience being on the other end of the needle and the drugs. An emotional, humbling and hugely satisfying couple of days. I've had worse backache after rugby games.

Not only did it underline what an amazing job Anthony Nolan...
