ACLT - African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust
ACLT is a charity committed to helping provide hope to patients living with blood cancer and other illnesses where a matched donor (stem cell, blood or organ) is required to save a life. Our work is driven by a belief that no one should die waiting for a donor to become available. Through our work, we improve odds of finding matches by registering potential donors on mass from all ethnicities, with a focus on donors from the African and Caribbean communities. This is due to an extreme shortage of African and Caribbean potential donors, signed to all three donor registries. ACLT also provide support and advice to patients and their families, from diagnosis, throughout treatment, recovery and sadly (in some cases), while supporting the patient and family during end of life, where treatments have not been successful.
DKMS
Someone is diagnosed with blood cancer in the UK every 18 minutes. Every 10 minutes blood cancer takes a life somewhere in the world. DKMS is committed to increasing the number of potential stem cell donors in the UK, to provide people who have been diagnosed with a blood cancer a second chance of life. We believe that no-one who is in need of a blood stem cell donor should die because they are unable to find a matching donor. For many blood cancer patients, a blood stem cell donation from a healthy person is their only chance of survival, but only half of the people diagnosed in the UK find a donor. Your donation will help us to register even more new donors so that they can be on stand-by to save a life. It costs the charity £40 to register each new donor, so we would really appreciate any financial contribution you can make. The more you can give, the more lives can be saved. Thank you!

Hi, thanks for visiting our page.

Your help is needed to raise money to support the search for bone marrow donors for blood cancer sufferers. Your donation will go to two amazing charities - ACLT (African Leukaemia Trust) and Delete Blood Cancer. Both of these charities need funding to continue their tireless work raising awareness of blood cancer and encouraging people to become life-saving bone marrow donors.


Swab kits and lab testing to register new bone marrow donors costs £40 per person - the more money we raise, the more people we can put on the register and the more lives we can save.


To donate by text, simply text the words: BEHO76 3, BEHO76 5 or BEHO76 10 to 70070 to make a donation of the respective amount (£3, £5 or £10)
