Where your money goes


Here are some examples of how your support could help people with blood cancers, like leukaemia, and other life-threatening blood conditions.

£60 could add a new lifesaver to our register.
This includes the cost of collecting and analysing each new donor’s saliva sample so we can work out their tissue type. We then securely store the donor’s tissue type on our register so we can search for them as a match for someone with blood cancer.

£21 could fund one hour of research into ensuring more people survive blood cancer.
We research how to make transplants as successful as possible, including how we can make the best matches between people in need of transplants and potential donors, and how to stop problems after transplants.

£10 could pay for the cost of a spit kit, and postage and packaging, to recruit a new potential lifesaver to our donor register.
The ‘spit kit’ allows a potential donor to collect, preserve and post us their saliva sample. Our scientists use the saliva sample to work out a donor’s tissue type.

£5 could get vital information to a patient and their family.
Life after a transplant comes with its own set of challenges. We offer a range of information to help patients and families to cope.

Each new donor on our register could mean the chance of life for someone with blood cancer.
