A Very Special Request

For this very special little lady

Aillidh has Leukaemia and is in need of a bone marrow transplant.

Please, I urge each and every one of you to sign up to the bone marrow registry wherever you live.

There are many people out there like Aillidh, and a serious shortage of donors, especially men. So get your sons, husbands and other significant fellers in  your lives to put their names down too.

What started off as a bruise and subsequent infection ended with this precious girl in hospital having Chemotherapy over Christmas. She is in isolation as her immune system is weakened by therapy at the moment.

Please help, Sign up today. Do something amazing in 2012. Save a life. Sign to the bone marrow registry, the cord blood registry, the blood donation service and of course be an organ donor. Thank you.

  1. Thank you so much dear for this post,, I am going to register soon..
    Big hugs for you cucki xxx

  2. I don't qualify for a bone marrow donor, but she is in my prayers.

  3. Been on the register since 1988. They wouldn't let me give blood (low weight, piercings, tattoos and low blood count!!) so I signed up for the bone marrow register instead and promised to gain weight, stop body mods and eat steak if I was called up!!
    Great cause.

  4. Been on the list for years.
    My prayers go out to the family.
