In June 2022, our family got a terrible shock when 14-year-old Daniel was diagnosed with leukaemia. Daniel has AML (acute myeloid leukaemia) meaning it has spread rapidly and aggressively. He is in hospital and has just completed 10 back-to-back days of very intensive chemotherapy, sometimes having to take four doses in a single day.
During this time, he has needed three units of blood and two platelet transfusions. If you know our Daniel, and most of you do, you'll know he never backs down or gives up easily! He is battling through it like the little fighter he has always been and we are hopeful that we have caught it early, but this is where we need YOUR help.
In the coming weeks, Daniel should have a bone marrow sample test result back which will tell doctors if the best approach is to continue with more chemo or if he needs a bone marrow transplant to help fight it.
The problem? The chances of getting a bone marrow match is 1 in 10 MILLION!! Please, please, PLEASE take the time to go to the link below or go online to the DKMS website to register as a donor. It can take up to 8 weeks from registering to actually be placed on the register, so we need you to register NOW!
It only takes 2 minutes to register and have a swab kit sent out to you. The swab sample only takes 5 minutes to do.
YOU could be the match that Daniel needs! YOU could make the difference!! YOU could be the match that someone on the other side of the world is currently praying for, waiting and hoping that YOU are out there and willing to save their life.
Essentially you could save someone’s life in less than 10 minutes, and without even leaving the house! So what are you waiting for? All I ask is that you take 2 minutes to register as bone marrow donor or a blood donor. You may never get called upon but you could possibly save up to 7 people’s lives! You could make the difference!! Please, do it for Daniel!!
