Could you be Eimear’s lifesaver?

Cliftonville Football Club reiterates our support for Eimear’s Search – a campaign to find a stem cell donor for seriously ill Belfast woman Eimear Smyth.

The 24-year-old was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer, in September 2016 and, following two relapses, now requires a potentially lifesaving stem cell transplant.

Her father Sean is trying to raise awareness of the stem cell register, which allows donors of the correct tissue types to be matched with patients who need stem cell transplants.


“I can’t fix my daughter, but someone else can, someone who could join the register and become the donor that Eimear desperately needs,” explains Sean.

“I’m not doing it just for my daughter, I’m doing it for people across the world. I want people to know it’s very simple to get on the register, we need you. You could be the one to help Eimear or someone else in need.”

Stem cell donors can register through or, with further information on the campaign available on the Eimear’s Search Facebook and Twitter platforms.
