The Bruce Denniston Bone Marrow Society was formed with the sole purpose of providing financial assistance to the Registry so that it could expand and give Bruce and all patients like him a second chance at life.
A donor was finally found for Bruce in England but the disease had ravaged his body for too long and the treatment required to prepare the young constable for the marrow transplant had taken its toll and he could not recover. He died in 1989, and his funeral was attended by an honour guard of RCMP officers.
