The family and friends of a grandfather from Todmorden are campaigning to recruit more potential donors to the Anthony Nolan bone marrow register, after being told that he needs a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.

Chris Barker, 59, who works for Baker Tilly, was diagnosed with MDS in May 2011, which has since caused him to develop acute myeloid leukaemia.

Father-of-three Chris has since been told that he needs a bone marrow transplant. Blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan uses its register to match potential bone marrow donors to blood cancer patients like Chris, for whom a transplant may be their best hope of a cure.
