Waiting for a donor
Hello all. Hope everyone is well!
At Anthony Nolan, we’re working on a new project to better understand how it feels when you are waiting to find out whether there is a matching donor for you.
Can you tell us about that time between when you heard that you would need a transplant and when a matching donor was found?
How did you feel during this time and how long did you expect it to take? Did you know how many donors were being tested for you?
Your experience is really important to us, so please feel free to comment on this post with anything you would like to share.
Your views will help us with an internal project which aims to improve the waiting times between needing a stem cell transplant and finding a match.
