MPs backing the Examiner bone marrow donation campaign have vowed to take the plan further in Parliament.
Kali Mountford and Barry Sheerman say there is still a lot they can do to press for improvements in education about the issue.
It comes after the Colne Valley MP and Huddersfield MP backed the Examiner and journalist Adrian Sudbury, who has leukaemia and has been given just weeks to live.
This week the MPs have arranged high-profile meetings between Adrian and Government ministers, including Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Ms Mountford said: “There is a lot of support we can still give and things we can do.
“The next thing is for the Prime Minister to do as he said he would and contact celebrities to ask if they would be part of a video campaign that could be used in schools or as a television campaign.
“There are also things we can do behind the scene in government regarding debates and getting the support of fellow MPs.
“We won’t let the momentum drop now we have the support of ministers Ed Balls and Alan Johnson and the Prime Minister.”
A campaign to change education policy to require schools to teach students about the issue of bone marrow donation was launched by the Examiner last Monday.
Adrian’s dying wish is for more people to sign up as bone marrow donors.
And he feels there should be more education about its importance in schools and colleges.
The MPs are now pressing for a 10- Minute Rule Bill.
This will allow them to debate the issue in Parliament and get the backing of other MPs.
The rule gives all backbenchers the chance to introduce a Bill of their own and give a speech in support of their proposal.
If approved, it will then join a list of Private Members Bills waiting for a second reading.
Mr Sheerman said: “The most important thing is that our strategy and the work we do achieves what Adrian wants to achieve.
“This isn’t just for the short term but for the long term.
“Adrian wants to make a real difference; hopefully what we do will help make that difference to many other people.”
