"I was delighted to host the Anthony Nolan Trust and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service this September, in the Scottish Parliament to mark Blood Cancer Awareness Month.

We celebrated the 1026 potential lifesavers in Glasgow Anniesland, who are signed up to the lifesaving register.

I encourage more people from Glasgow Anniesland, particularly men aged 16-30 and people from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds, to register as stem cell donors and make sure that a match is available for everyone in need of a transplant. While anyone on the register could be a match for someone with blood cancer, men aged 16-30 are most likely to be asked to donate. They provide more than 50% of donations yet make up just 18% of the register."
