Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders. Every day, we match incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people who desperately need lifesaving transplants. It costs £100 to recruit, tissue type and maintain just one potential donor to our register. Your donations will help fund our lifesaving work. Please visit www.anthonynolan.org for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to get more involved.
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 i'm Gavin Sandford founder of www.icanandiwill.co.uk
On behalf of The Team at 'I can and I will' I would like to ask you for your support and thank you now for taking the time to read and digest the following.
Imagine trying to save the life of someone you love, trying to find a donor with the same tissue type as their's.
Imagine having to pray and be relying upon the benevolence of others and hoping that someone out there is a exact tissue type match tissue-type for your loved one.
This could easily happen to you.
Finding a donor match is not straight forward. The odds of success are currently poor. Only 50% of patients needing a life saving donor ever find a match and if you are of Black, Asian or of mixed race the figure falls to 20%.
For me, this situation is unacceptable and I wish to spread awareness about this desperate need for more donatee's.
PEOPLE ARE DIEING NEEDLESSLY!
Throughout 2017 I will be undertaking various ICAIW Extreme endurance events to try to get others inspired and involved with the need to join the Bone Marrow and Stem Cell registers.
PLEASE VISIT MY HOME PAGE AT WWW.ICANANDIWILL.CO.UK AND SHARE YOUR REGISTRATION AND SELFIE PHOTO TO YOUR FRIENDS VIA ALL OF YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA AND GET THEM TO JOIN THE REGISTERS. SAY 'I CAN AND I WILL' TODAY AND LET'S SAVE LIVES TOGETHER
