2014 - Make it a Year to Remember

As time goes on the need seems to be as great as ever.  On a daily basis patients are being diagnosed with life threatening illnesses.  Dreams are shattered and families are devastated to be told that a bone marrow transplant is needed - but there isn't a donor!

More volunteer bone marrow stem cell donors are needed as a matter of great urgency.  You're action today could give somebody a future.

Find out how you could be a potential bone marrow stem cell donor.  This could be the first step you make towards saving someone's life.

And that really would make a difference - to someone.  And just being on the register will bring hope to others and help patients in the future.

Make 2014 a year to remember for the right reason - sign up to give a gift of life!

Coming Soon - A New Campaign Website

This site is old and will soon be replaced with a new, more modern website. 

Although lacking updates, this site will continue online until the replacement is ready. 

The information here is still relevant - the need is still great.

Watch this space . . . .

Give Someone a Chance to Live

THE letter was simply addressed: “Dear Mr Donor”, and as Shaw McIntyre read on, the sudden realisation of what he had just done became overwhelming.

“My daughter will be three years old this month,” he read, “and your gift is the best one I could ever have asked for: the gift of a new life."

There aren’t many things that can shake a burly West Lothian roofer to the soles of his working boots, but for father-of-three Shaw, discovering he had just helped save the life of a little girl 6000 miles away was enough to bring a lump to his throat.

You too could donate life to someone - and it's easy.  There is a  desperate need for more volunteers to join the bone marrow register.  Patients are dying as suitable marrow donors cannot be found in time to give them a life-saving bone marrow transplant.  Many of these are children. 

This story is a couple of years old now - but the message and the emotions described are real

Please don't let time run out on our children

LESS than 3 in 10 patients find a donor in their own family so most rely on the worldwide bone marrow register.  However there is an urgent need for more volunteers to sign up as potential donors.  That need is even greater within minority ethnic communities.  You can make a real difference.

Can't make it to a registration drive?  Then register by post.

What is it like to donate bone marrow?

OFTEN fear of the unknown prevents people from finding out more and joining the bone marrow register.  The best way to find out what it is like to donate is from donors themselves.  In August 2007 the Western Daily Press published two feature articles covering personal accounts of bone marrow donors.  These can be downloaded by clicking on the thumbnail below:

IT is important that new potential donors take steps to join the bone marrow register as soon as possible.  But what if there is no clinic near to you?  The answer is easy - REGISTER BY POST.  It is an easy process to join the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Register by post.

You can raise funds for Race Against Time every time you search the web. is a great search engine that works just like other major search engines.  But it also generates cash for the Race Against Time and it doesn’t cost you or us a penny.
