“ we implore everyone to join the register, and if you are unable to because of medical reasons, please share to family, friends and neighbours; this disease does not discriminate, so we have to fight back, joining the register is the only safeguard and defence we have”

Martin continues “ at the moment, only 3% of the population ( uk wide) is on the stem cell register, this is way too low. Our campaign is targeting our membership, which is 1.4 million and also the wider public. There is strength in a Union, we will leave no stone unturned in this quest!”

UNITE to save Bobby’s life!
