Only a small percentage of Liverpool residents are registered as potential lifesavers

DELETE Blood Cancer UK, the charity that recruits potential blood stem cell donors, is asking for more Liverpool residents to register to become a potential lifesaver. Currently, only 8,844 from the Liverpool area are registered as potential blood stem cell donors with Delete Blood Cancer UK, but many more are being sought to help find matches for the thousands of blood cancer patients needing a blood stem cell donation every year.   For many blood cancer patients, a blood stem cell donation is their only chance of survival and they will die if a matching donor isn't found for them. A matching donor not being found doesn't mean that there is nobody with a tissue type compatible with the patient. There could be someone out there with a tissue type that matches the patient's, meaning they could save their life, but tragically, they may not be registered as a potential blood stem donor.

Emphasising how easy it is for people to register, Caroline Portlock, Head of Donor Recruitment at Delete Blood Cancer UK, said:- "Registering online as a potential blood stem cell donor only takes a few minutes, but it could lead to you giving decades to someone else. It could lead to you saving the life of someone with blood cancer who is in need of a blood stem cell donation for their survival. Please take the time to do it as it could be 1 of the most important things you ever do."

You can register in 5 minutes online and request a cheek swab kit that will enable you to do your own tissue test to go on the database and maybe 1 day become a blood stem cell donor. Register through the Delete Blood Cancer UK website.
