UCL Marrow work alongside the charity Anthony Nolan to help save the lives of people with blood cancer by signing people onto the stem cell register. For various reasons, young people like us make the best donors – with a real chance of saving a life. That’s why it’s important we do the work we do. Our goals are: 1. To raise awareness of the importance of signing onto the register at UCL. 2. Sign students between the ages of 16-30 onto the stem cell register. 3. Fundraise for Anthony Nolan as signing people onto the register costs the charity a total of £40 per person. 4. Bust myths! People often think this is a painful process (not true!) and unaware that there’s a 1 in 100 chance they would ever donate.
