Race Against Blood Cancer

Who we are

Race Against Blood Cancer's goal is to increase the volume and diversity of people who register for a life-saving stem cell transplant; we believe that everyone should have the equal opportunity of a second chance at life.

Stem cell and bone marrow transplants are now regularly used as a potentially curative treatment for patients with blood cancer (such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma), however, there is only a 25% chance of finding a matching donor in their family, so many people are reliant on a donation from a stranger.

The chances of finding a donor vary greatly depending on your ethnicity; while White Northern Europeans needing a donor have a 69% chance of a best possible stem cell match, people from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background have just a 20% chance of achieving the same due to the lack of diversity on the stem cell and bone marrow register.

We want all blood cancer patients to have an equal chance of finding a best-possible stem cell donor match.

We have a simple overarching strategy to define our mission:

  1. Raise awareness of the issue and improve apathy.
  2. Educate people on the process of becoming a donor and demystifying the many myths.
  3. Help simplify the sign up process and make this more accessible.

By focussing on this strategy, we will recruit more potential donors to the register.

By increasing the number of donors on the register, we will save lives.
