Veer is 4. He has a rare genetic disorder called Fanconi Anaemia, and so his bone marrow is not functioning properly.​

He needs to find a lifesaving stem cell donor if he is to survive.

Registering to be a stem cell donor is easy. No blood tests, just a swab of the inside of the cheek. Takes just a few minutes to become a potential LIFESAVER!

The following gives the answers to the most common questions.

  • How do I join the donor register?
    Joining the register is really quite simple and you can do this either at one of the many events we’ll be attending or by contacting Anthony Nolan or DKMS directly. They will send out a swab kit and once you’ve done your swab you can simply return these by post. You’ll get confirmation in just a few weeks. If you don’t live in the UK there may be a registry in your country. We have a full list below.
  • How can I get involved with Veer's campaign

We’ll keep in touch with you to keep you informed of all the actitivities you’re undertaking and you can then decide where you think you’ll be able to help.
  • I have an idea! Who should I speak to?
    If you have an idea that might be useful to the campaign please get in touch and we’ll get back in touch to discuss the idea. If you don’t hear from us immediately don’t worry. Sometimes things get a little hectic and it might take us slightly longer to get back to you but we will definitely get in touch.
  • I don't live in the UK. Can I get involved?
    Absolutely! We’re currently able to get donors registered in multiple countries. Whilst the campaign was launched to help Veer we recognise that there may be many others like him who need help. We’re therefore keen to try and help as many other families as we possibly can. Even if you register in another country and you are a match you can help Veer or others like him.
