Saved a life...???
At Universities all across the UK, you'll find students like us volunteering for Marrow.
What do we do?
We are a student group that helps to save the lives of people with blood cancers, such as leukaemia.
Why do we do it?
We want to give every student the chance to do something remarkable.
When a person with blood cancer needs a stem cell transplant, it's usually their only hope of life.
Currently 30,000 people worldwide urgently need a transplant. Most of them are relying on someone they have never met to do something amazing and donate their blood stem cells.
At Marrow, we organise student registry clinics and spread the word that someone like you could be a lifesaver.
Our trained volunteers counsel students about the medical issues regarding stem cell transplants, and ensure that everyone signing up to the stem cell register is fully aware of what it involves.
We also fundraise for our parent charity Anthony Nolan, which matches donors to people who match their tissue type and are in need of a lifesaving blood stem cell transplant.
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers with good communication skills
Volunteering for Marrow is a great way to gain some early clinical experience and looks good on your CV
Training for new volunteers: Tuesday 9th October, 7:00pm, Talybont Social (upstairs)
Please e-mail us for more info (firstname.lastname@example.org), or RSVP to book your place!
