AN MP is urging people to donate blood stem cells to save lives.
Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage has got behind the campaign by the charity Delete Blood Cancer UK in a bid to recruit donors to the blood stem cell register.
She said: ‘Registering online as a potential blood stem cell donor only takes a few minutes, but it could lead to you giving decades to someone else.’
In the UK there are around 1,800 people with blood cancer searching for someone with a matching tissue type who could help save their life.
Around 9,000 people in the Portsmouth area are registered. Go to deletebloodcancer.org.uk.
