A grey rainy Monday calls for a story with a happy ending..

Last Friday on Mumsnet, an appeal went out for Margot, a little girl diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia called 'dual lineage' leukaemia, which is formed of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and acute myeloid leukaemia. A bone marrow transplant was Margot's only hope however, due to her multi ethnic dual heritage this was proving to be a challenging task.

Since this appeal a match has been found much to the relief of Margot's family - read the happy news HERE  

As a direct result of this appeal Delete Blood Cancer have been inundated with potential stem cell donors. It takes 5 minutes to register as a stem cell blood donor, I know because I did it earlier, so why don't you start your week with a little boost of karma. They will send you a swab kit and add you to their register. For more information please click HERE.
