Today I am mostly very proud of my husband. Last year we registered as donors with Delete Blood Cancer who match people with blood cancer like leukaemia and lymphoma with donor matches. Around 2000 people in the U.K. are registered and less than 1% of those registered will ever be a match.
Turns out Mr MIP is a match though so next month, after a series of injections, he’ll be giving his stem cells through blood donation that will take between 4 and 6 hours but could save the life of someone with cancer somewhere in the world.
And that’s it – a most swab, a match, a health exam and a blood donation and that could be someone’s life changed forever.
How amazing is that?
If you’d like to register as a donor you can visit www.dkms.org.uk
In the meantime I present to you my wonderful, giving, happy and stem cell filled husband.
Well done chap x x
