Anthony Nolan is an amazing charity which saves and improves the lives of people with blood cancer and blood diseases.
Through its FREE stem cell donor register, numerous people with life threatening conditions have been matched up with donors they would have no access to otherwise.
In the Bishop Auckland constituency 713 people are registered with the average age of 39.
It is so important for young people to register as they provide better outcomes for patients and are less likely to have health problems that prevent donation. Young men aged between 16 - 30 are particularly encouraged to register as men generally have a greater number of stem cells but we have fewer men registered .
You can register online at the Anthony Nolan website.
