My grandson has been diagnosed with leukaemia.
In all probability he will need a bone marrow transplant.
It takes a simple mouth swab to find out if you are a match with someone.
It's not until something like this happens in your family that you think of donating.
Please think about his there are not enough donors out there.

Hope a perfect match is found quickly x

thank you, also I know a lot of people use the sainsburys active kids vouchers for themselves but I was wondering if anyone who doesn't use them would send them to me so I can donate a useful resource to the hospital for the childrens play are outside.

Sorry to hear about your grandson. I've been on the donor register for a few years. It's easy to register but they do ask for a donation as it's a charity. It really should be part of the NHS.

I'm sorry to hear of your news. I hope a match is found quickly if that is what he needs. Sending love to your family at this time x

Sorry to hear that your grandson is so poorly - hope a donor match is found soon and thank you for posting about the register - it's something I will sign up for and I seem to have lapsed from attending blood donors so will make it a belated New Years resolution to get back onto the system. Sending love and prayers to you and your family xxx

So sorry to hear about your Grandson. I hope a donor is found soon. I am a blood donor and am registered with them for bone marrow to. I will use your link and see if I can register there as well. Xx

My heart goes out to you xxx. May I just add something I didnt realise until recently. You can still be a bone marrow donor even if you cant give blood. I cannot donate blood due to a transfusion years ago but I was ok to sign up to bone marrow donor site. xxx

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandson! I hope you find a match soon.

I can't give blood (the spirit is willing, but the veins are small and not bleedy enough!) but I have been on the bone marrow register for several years now.
