UEA Marow, in affiliation with the Anthony Nolan charity, helps find donors for those with blood cancer. Our main goal is to get as many students of UEA onto the register as possible.
Across the country, Marrow groups have helped contibute 1/4 donors to the bone marrow translant register. This is an incredible achievement, and we plan on doing even better this year.
We will be having fndraisers, donor drives, socials and meetings every week. This is a fantastic society to be a part of because your contribution will most likely save a persons life, and give them a second chance. As a new society as of this year we will be striving to sign up at least 500 students to be potential life savers.
Each year nearly 18,000 people, age 0 - 74 years, might benefit from a potentially life-saving bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant; could you help save someone?
As well as being a cahirty, we are also a society. This means we wil be having many socials and fun get togethers over the year. Being part of a society is a really important part of being a student and as a new society we would love it if we could be part of your student life here at UEA.
