In September 2020, Anthony Nolan and RSM marked 5,000 lifesaving trips, thanks to our partnership. Throughout lockdown a small, yet incredible team of volunteer couriers continued delivering blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer and blood disorders. Watch our short video to get an insight into the journey, and this fantastic milestone achieved during RSM and AN’s tenth year of working together.
In the video, RSM Anthony Nolan Ambassador Jake Bennett explains: ‘Every 14 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukaemia. RSM supports Anthony Nolan’s couriers to deliver lifesaving stem cells to patients.’
AN volunteer courier Steph made the 5,000th trip. She added: ‘Once a person donates stem cells, we have a 72 hour-window to get them to the patient. It’s a little bit nerve-wracking every time I do a trip, but it‘s also a massive privilege.’
RSM is incredibly proud to support the team at the Anthony Nolan charity that help make these trips possible.
This is a huge milestone and one that’s been ten years in the making.
Thank you to all who made this possible.
