The gift of life: New Zealand's bone marrow registry

From Nights, 10:18 pm on 8 April 2024

Nick Embleton was a doctor working in Newcastle's neonatal intensive care unit in the UK when he started to feel unwell.

Diagnosed with a rare cancer, Nick's chances of survival were slim.

But a bone marrow transplant from a donor in Germany saved his life.

He's in New Zealand visiting with the University of Auckland, and he says it's vital to get more viable donors on New Zealand's bone marrow registry.
