Be A ‘Real Man’ And Help Fight Blood Cancer By Becoming A Stem Cell Donor – #MarchOfTheMen
Here are some thoughts from some high profile supporters:
Dani Lawrence and her partner Brad Jones have supported Anthony Nolan since Brad’s son Luca was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2010.
Although Luca received a bone marrow transplant through Anthony Nolan later that year, he sadly passed away in November 2011.
“Being a donor doesn’t involve a massive operation – it’s a process similar to giving blood.
“I feel so proud when I think about stepping out onto the cricket pitch, ready to represent our country. But knowing that you’ve helped save someone’s life simply by donating your bone marrow? That would feel absolutely incredible.
“And what’s even better is that everyone can do it, whether you’ve got an eye for the ball or not. I want every young person aged 16-30 to be part of something amazing – the Anthony Nolan bone marrow register.”
Someone is diagnosed with blood cancer every 20 minutes and for many of these people, a stem cell transplant from a donor on the Anthony Nolan register is their last chance of life.
The problem is, not enough men are signing up to the Anthony Nolan register. So this March, they’re calling on young men everywhere to join the movement, sign up to the register and spread the message: being a man means you could save a life.
Men are encouraged to sign up today and be the man at www.anthonynolan.org/marchofthemen and share with the hashtag #MarchOfTheMen
