Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, attended a thank you event in Parliament hosted by Anthony Nolan, in recognition of his support for the blood cancer charity’s successful campaign to fund a lifesaving treatment.

Justin backed the ‘Defend Second Transplants’ campaign after NHS England announced it would no longer routinely fund second stem cell transplants for people whose blood cancer or blood disorder relapses, effectively denying patients a cure.

Following Anthony Nolan’s hugely successful campaign NHS England has announced new funding for second transplants.

Justin said:

“I am proud to have played my part to ‘Defend Second Transplants’. Thanks to this campaign people with blood cancer and blood disorders, whose disease relapses, have been given another chance of life.”
