Making a Difference
The cure for chemotherapy-resistant blood cancers - such as lymphoma, leukaemia and myeloma - relies on finding stem cell donors with a similar ethnic background; currently 4 in 5 BAME patients do not find a match. Race Against Blood Cancer is a charity whose goal it is to increase the volume and diversity of people who register as potentially life-saving donors.
It is estimated that there are approximately 2000 people currently seeking a stem cell donor and the chances of a best possible stem cell match vary greatly depend on your ethnicity – while White Northern Europeans needing a donor have a 69% chance of a best possible stem cell match, people from a BAME background have just a 20% chance of achieving the same due to the lack of ethnic diversity on the stem cell and bone marrow register.
This film shows how Race Against Blood Cancer is working to improve outcomes for patients by recruiting potential stem cell donors and raising awareness of the importance of registration. We want a future where every patient has the equal chance of a stem cell match: donors save lives.
