A cancer patient who spent his final months calling for more people to register to donate bone marrow has died aged 49.
Doctors were unable to find a suitable bone marrow donor to help Paul Hague, of Greenhill, who had acute myeloid leukaemia.
Paul’s family launched a Facebook campaign, while a fundraising night collected over £2,000 for the Anthony Nolan Trust, which runs a bone marrow donor register for young people.
Paul’s wife, Natalie, 45, said: “Paul has left a legacy, because hundreds of young people have registered on the Anthony Nolan Trust register and other people over 30 have been in touch with the blood donor services.”
Paul, a father-of-four, had his own gardening business. His cancer was confirmed last year.
A celebration of his life will be held at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium tomorrow (Friday) at 2.30pm.
