In 2013, 14-month-old Margot Martini was diagnosed with blood cancer and required a bone marrow transplant (also known as a stem cell transplant) to stand the best chance of survival.
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.
Video blogs on the bone marrow donor’s journey, Margot’s transplant video, Team Margot donor registration events, our original appeal video for Margot & much more !
There are so many positive things going on right now that I really haven’t had much chance to sit down and gather my thoughts over the last few days.
Thanks to all your support, the Team Margot jungle drums continue to beat loudly and one of the more recent initiatives has again come from the UK hospitality industry.
We are delighted to announce our partnership with The Epicurean Collection – a selection of beautiful and traditional inns celebrating the British countryside. For every child’s meal ordered at any of the 15 inns within the collection, parents will have the opportunity to donate from 12.5p to 25p (depending on the inn) to Team Margot Foundation (a children’s menu is available at all but the King John and Crab & Boar).
It’s such a thoughtful partnership and we’re enormously grateful to the entire team at The Epicurean Collection for their wonderful support.
Team Margot Foundation is a grant giving foundation that supports people, charities and research related to bone marrow / stem cell transplants, blood disorders like leukaemia and those caring for child cancer patients.
