‘Up until my donation day, it hadn’t really hit me what I was doing.

'While donating I decided to send out a few tweets to show my friends. I got some of the most incredible retweets and comments.

‘It was really overwhelming, being thanked by total strangers who were waiting to find a match!

‘There are many false myths surrounding stem cell donation. My donation was simple, comfortable...

'People going through a transplant are often worried about family. Partners. Children. Parents. They're very aware of trying to protect them.

'But people are mainly concerned about just trying to get through it.'

Our new Patient Services Podcast is here - and it's all about the emotional impact of a stem cell transplant.

How you might feel. How you could manage your own wellbeing. Where you...

This needs to get seen - because it'll shock you.

In the UK, people with mixed or minority ethnic heritage have just a 60% chance of finding a stem cell donor who could save their life.

Worse, they have a 20% chance of finding a donor who's the best possible match.

That match could be the difference between a successful transplant and a failure. To someone with blood cancer, it could...

We post a lot about stem cell donation on Facebook. (You might have noticed.) How much it matters. How many lives it saves, every day.

The trouble is, people often skim right past it. They don't look twice.

That's why one Dad has come up with a very creative way of raising awareness - to force people to look twice.

Stephen has photoshopped his daughter Hannah into a series of 'marginally...

'He had an unrelated donor from America, a 46-yr-old woman.

'He is doing GREAT and his blood counts are near normal.

In April 2010, the Icelandic volcano of Eyjafjallajökull erupted without warning.

Chaos and disruption ensued across Europe - not least for one Anthony Nolan volunteer courier, Michael, who found himself stranded in Germany with a precious consignment of stem cells.

This is the story of Michael's journey home.

Our story starts way back in 1974.

It starts when a mother – Shirley Nolan – refuses to give up on the life of her infant son Anthony, and fights to establish the world’s first register for stem cell donors.

It starts in crowded hospital rooms, in newspaper headlines and government protests, in sorrow and in pain.

And ultimately, it starts with the belief that complete strangers can reach...

'If that was my little girl, I’d want someone to be there for her.'

Meet Ray. He's a proud dad to Ariana (2), from Wallsend in Tyneside.

And now, amazingly, he's a lifesaving stem cell donor, too.

For Ray, his decision to sign up and donate was incredibly simple.

'For me it’s a question of, "Why not"?

'How would you feel if your child or parent or cousin needed a donor and you weren’t a...

Have you ever seen the look on a London Marathon runner's face as they reach one of our #TeamAN cheerpoints?

We have. And it's just incredible.

Because those runners grin. They wave. They duck in to give a great big sweaty hug to someone who loves them.

And then they keep running - re-energised, inspired, more determined than ever to hit that finish line after 26.2 miles.
