Day 10

On day ten of our charity advent calendar we’re supporting:

Get involved

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without your support

Give a gift. Save a life this Christmas

When 11-month-old Pixie was rushed into hospital on Christmas Eve, no one knew what was wrong with her. When she was finally diagnosed with a rare and potentially terminal blood disease, a stem cell transplant was her only chance. 

Every day, five patients like Pixie start their urgent search for a matching donor. A lifesaving search funded by people like you.

‘Christmas without Pixie…it’s unthinkable’ Johanna, Pixie’s mum

Donate £25 to Anthony Nolan today to make sure other families like Pixie’s don’t have to face the idea of Christmas without someone they desperately care about. 

Anthony Nolan

For someone with blood cancer or a blood disease, a stem cell transplant could be their last chance of survival. Your support could help us give that person, their family and their friends a second chance of life.

Anthony Nolan is the charity that makes lifesaving connections between people with blood cancer and incredible strangers ready to donate their stem cells. We’re saving lives right now. Three lives a day, in fact.

It all began in 1974. With her three-year-old son Anthony in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant, Shirley Nolan set up the world’s first register to match donors with people in desperate need. 

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, people like three-year-old Pixie now have their lives back. And we couldn’t be happier that Pixie’s about to enjoy her first full Christmas at home, well and with all her family. 


Without your support, there is no cure
