Aaryan Karim is three years old, and a huge fan of superheroes. He also has leukaemia and he needs a stem cell transplant to save his life.
His family are urging people to sign up as a potential stem cell donor, particularly those from Asian backgrounds.
At the moment, less than 60% of patients are able to find a ‘perfect’ match, and this falls to just a 1 in 5 chance if you’re from a black, Asian or ethnic minority community.
You can save a life.
Or at least – because we know from Margot’s experience that there are no guarantees – you can gift someone extended time with their family & with loved ones; a priceless gift.

She is one-year-old and suffering from langerhans-cell histiocytosis (LCH), a rare disease that involves the clonal proliferation of Langerhans cells, abnormal cells deriving from bone marrow and capable of migrating from skin to lymph nodes.
She has undergone chemotherapy which meant that she spent her first Christmas, and her first birthday, in hospital.
Her parent’s wish is that she spends this Christmas at home.
She now needs a blood stem cell donation to get better and a matching donor is being sought for her.
You could help her, and all those seeking a matching blood stem cell donor, by applying for a simple cheek swab kit that will enable you to join the registry through our website: www.deletebloodcancer.org.uk

Can you help Fathima, and all those who can’t find a matching donor within their family ?
One of the myths surrounding blood stem cell donation is that most people can find a matching donor within their family. Unfortunately this isn’t true, as most people rely on the generosity of strangers to join the registry, and then to donate some of their blood stem cells if they have a matching tissue type.
Fathima, who is 25 and has acute myeloid leukaemia, is a good example of why we need as many people as possible to join the registry.
She needs a blood stem cell donation to get better and although she is a twin, her twin sister isn’t suitable to donate her blood stem cells to Fathima. Her family were tested to see if they had matching tissue types to Fathima and could donate their blood stem cells to her, but none were.
Fathima is relying on people to join the blood stem cell registry to help her find a matching donor. As her heritage is Sri Lankan, she is appealing especially to those with a similar heritage to join the registry, as this is likely to provide the most suitable match for her.
