Rose supports « World Cancer Day »

In last August, Rose showed her support to Anthony Nolan, the UK’s blood cancer charity and bone marrow register, by taking part to the #IGiveASpit campaign which urged people to add their names to stem cell donor register. She talked about the campaign here, and you can find some pictures taken to promote it in the gallery here. She said :

‘So far I’ve never had that call to say I’m a match for someone, but if I did, I’d consider it to be the greatest privilege of my life. One of my closest childhood friends, Millie, was diagnosed with leukaemia when she was 19. At the time, Millie campaigned to get more people onto the Anthony Nolan register and I remember feeling so humbled by her bravery and selflessness. She had a stem cell transplant using the best possible match on the register at the time, but it wasn’t the ‘perfect’ match and she sadly relapsed and died a few months later. If there were more young people on the Anthony Nolan register ten years ago, my friend might have found a closer match and might still be here today. So, even if just one person signs up because of the #IGiveASpit campaign, they could be the difference between life and death for someone like Millie.’

On 4 February, Antholy Nolan is uniting with Breast Cancer Care, Movember Foundation UK and Cancer Research UK to raise lifesaving awareness for World Cancer Day. They have posted a picture of Rose showing her support by wearing a Unity Band on their twitter today.
