Our celeb Supporters

We want to share the #GobForGood message as far and wide as possible — especially to ethnic minority groups who are under-represented on the stem cell register.

So we asked a few of our friends to lend their gob to the cause.

We can do this

“Reading about Pete’s journey, the diagnosis, his family, and the bid to get as many people as possible to sign up to the donor register (as I did), the campaign has my backing. I hope through my involvement in some way we can encourage greater numbers of stem cell donor sign ups and ultimately that Pete is able to find his matching stem cell donor. Come on people, we can do this!”

We must do better

“The fact that black, mixed race and ethnic minority patients are still at a disadvantage when it comes to finding matched stem cell donors simply because not enough of us are registering as potential donors is shocking. We as a community must do more to help each other, and we all know that cancer affects 1 in 2 of us, what are we waiting for? No more excuses, we must do much better!”

Trevor Nelson MBE
BBC Radio DJ

“I didn’t know anything about stem cell donation and was dumbfounded to realise how easy it is. It’s such a simple thing yet it could have such a significant effect on somebody’s life — it could be the difference between life and death. Think about the people you love and how you’d feel if they needed this. And then just register, because you could change somebody’s whole life.”

Get behind Gob for good

“When it comes to saving the lives of people of colour, statistics are against us. Even though black and brown people make up 88% of the world’s population, less than 0.4% are registered as donors. This means the chances of finding a match for anyone with a life- threatening illness is greatly reduced. Please, please get registered and ask others to do the same.”

You don’t need a cape to be a hero.

You just need a gob.

So, please, put it to good use.
