Stem Cell Donor Event

Stem Cell Donor 

 

On Friday 28th June we will be holding a Stem Cell Donor Drive after our sports day. This is to support a little boy called Finn who lives locally to us who desperately needs a stem cell transplant to help him fight a potentially life-threatening condition called haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis.  This condition cause the immune system to be dangerously overstimulated.

 

A number of donor drives have been held locally, although the very rare nature of Finn’s condition means that it is difficult to find a match.

 

Testing involves swabbing cells from the cheek with a cotton bud and takes no more than 3 to 4 minutes. These cells are then sent away to be tested to see if a suitable donor has been found.

 

Any individual aged between 17 and 55 is eligible to be swabbed.

 

We are encouraging all our families to join the donor drive.
