Mylas’ Fight – Please Register

30th Jan 2018

Myla is a lively five year old who lives in our community. Just four weeks ago was diagnosed with a very rare and life- threatening disease known as severe Aplastic Anaemia.

This cruel disease causes total bone marrow failure, which leads to a serious deficiency in all three types of blood cells that we need in order to live healthily.

Sadly, there is no cure. Her best chance of surviving lies in her receiving a bone marrow transplant, but unfortunately, there are not many donors on the bone marrow register. Myla’s mum and dad are therefore urging as many people as possible to sign up to the register. It is easy to do and can be done online. Those who sign up will be sent a swab kit. All they have to do is swab the inside of their mouths, seal it and send it back for analysis.  

Ninety percent of those selected as possible matches for Myla (or anyone on the register) would be able to donate directly from their bloodstream - which is both a comfortable and painless way of donating. The reward, potentially, is to save a life! Could YOU could be the one who saves Myla’s life? Imagine if she was your child. Please help if you can. This is about the community coming together, so please spread the word.
