Could you save a boys life?
Eight year old Elliot Wild needs a bone marrow transplant
Elliot has been diagnosed with leukaemia and needs a stem cell (or bone marrow) transplant to save his life.
Elliot’s mum, Jackie, said, “We’ve had an absolutely horrific time. Someone out there could help Elliot and give all of us that bit of hope."
So far, a search of Anthony Nolan’s register hasn’t found a match for Elliot but his family has set up an Anthony Nolan donor recruitment event to look for their son’s lifesaver in their home region.
To find out more about whether you could save Elliot, or one of 1,400 people in the UK who need a transplant, come along to Higher Bebington Junior School, Mill Road, on Saturday 23 October between 10am and 2pm.
On the day, you’ll be asked for some medical information and a small saliva sample.
To join Anthony Nolan’s register, you must be aged between 18 and 40, weigh over 8 stone (51kg) and be in general good health. The donation process itself is performed as an outpatient appointment and is similar to giving blood.
