Our daughter Eimear was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in September 2016. Eimear died on June 27th 2019 following complications from a Bone Morrow transplant.

Eimear’s dying wish was that more people would join the Bone Marrow Donor Registry. Anyone between the ages of 18-45, in good health can register as a blood stem cell donor. The healthiest stem cells come from people aged between 18—30. Young men in this age group make up less than 20% of the donor register, but provide an astonishing 55% of all donations.

Only 2.7% of people living in Northern Ireland are on the bone marrow donor register and only 5% regularly give blood. Therefore, we are asking you to register as a bone marrow and blood donor, you can join the registers by scanning the QR codes below.

Registering is a simple, pain free process. Upon registration a swab kit will be sent to you in the post which you use to swab the inside of your cheek and post back. Donation can be as simple a process as donating blood.

Every year 30 people or more In Northern Ireland have to find a total stranger who is willing to donate their bone marrow otherwise they will have no chance of surviving their life threatening illness. 

Help us Create Hope for people with life threatening illnesses.
