Lots of love on Mother’s Day


In this video, Margot asks “Where Mummy Be ?” and teases her Grandad about the colour of a playdoh turtle…

Lots of love on Mothering Sunday.

You can save a life.

We know from Margot’s experience that there are no guarantees, however you can still gift someone more time with their family and loved ones & precious moments like this. Our family are unspeakably grateful to Margot’s selfless, anonymous donor.

Please consider joining the stem cell registry as a potential donor. The easiest way is a painless, five minute online registration following which you have roughly a 1 in 1,200 chance of doing something heroic: actually becoming a donor and having the opportunity to save someone’s life.

The stem cell is the only organ to replenish itself. The benefits of donation far outweigh the actual or perceived inconvenience.

If you’re ineligible to register or if you have done so already, please encourage Just One More person to do the same, particularly if they’re of mixed race / genealogy. Margot’s mixed family background was one of the key reasons it wasn’t possible for her to find a perfect match.

There are 37,000 people worldwide who, right now, are in need of a blood stem cell donor, including 2,000 people in the UK alone.

Only 50% of people with a blood cancer ever find a suitable match. And the odds fall to only 20% if the patient has a mixed heritage.

It needn’t be that way.

Please SHARE.

Thank you.
