We are delighted to have been contacted by Tessa Roberts, during the course of the last several weeks.
Initially, Tessa wrote:
“I just wanted to let you know that I signed up to be a stem cell donor while you were looking for a match for Margot (a friend of yours used to volunteer at the organisation I worked at, so I helped her to set up a swabbing station in the office and we got everyone in the office to sign up).
All these years later, I got a call to say that I’m a match for someone who needs a donor, so I’ll be giving my stem cells in a couple of weeks to help someone with blood cancer.
I was so sorry to hear that Margot didn’t make it, I can’t imagine how it must feel to lose a child. But I hope it provides some small comfort to know that through your efforts someone is getting a potentially life-saving transplant.
Without your campaign I wouldn’t have been on the register, so the fact that this person found a match is down to Team Margot.”
And then more recently, we heard from Tessa again, this time she sent word of her donation along with photographs:
“My donation went smoothly, it felt great to have the chance to help someone in need of a transplant, so thank you for all your work to get people registered and for being the catalyst to make this happen.”
Thank you Tessa & well done again.
Together, saving lives
