Louise Clague

Blood cancer is a thing. A nasty, horrible thing that kills people.
Turns out, though, the power to save those suffering from it lies in *all* our hands. Or, actually, our gobs — because it only takes a quick cheek swab to see if you could donate your stem cells and save someone’s life.


GobForGood is Pete McCleave’s latest campaign. Pete was diagnosed with Myeloma, a blood cancer, in 2017 and was given 7 years to live, unless he finds his stem cell match. There isn’t a match on the register at the moment and time is ticking.You will have the opportunity to ‘give us your cheeks’ with a live mass swab and use your GoForGood!

DKMS are a blood cancer charity. We recruit potential lifesavers to the stem cell register and raise awareness and funds to cover the registration costs.
