Margot had an extremely rare dual lineage Leukaemia with both Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) & Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML). The consultant haematologist told us that he had only seen 3 such cases in 10 years.

Margot’s auntie, Nadia and I have been getting a bit more political recently and consequently we have been reaching out to and have now met various MPs.
This is of course to raise awareness and initially, we want to help raise awareness of the need for more people to join the register, in particular from the BAME (Black Asian and Minority Ethnic) communities and from those people with mixed race within Parliament.
You can help by clicking here or on the image above and sharing the question via social media.
There’s a lot more going on besides, but more on that later.
For the time being, we’re very pleased to have had the first of our questions raised in Parliament.
Together, saving lives
