A 23-year-old Nigerian mother living in the UK is appealing to Nigerians to help her find a matching blood stem donor.
May Brown who is mother to two-year-old daughter Selina-May is suffering from acute myeloid leukaemia and doctors have told her that a blood stem cell donation may be her only chance of survival.
Because she is Nigerian, she is more likely to get a suitable match from someone from Nigeria or west africa.
DKMS, an international charity dedicated to fighting blood cancer, is appealing for people to register as potential blood stem cell donors to help find a matching donor for her.
The appeal has become more urgent following a relapse of the leukaemia.
“Please register today as a potential blood stem cell donor. Do it, if not for my sake, but for the sake of my little girl. She is only two years old and needs her mummy. Your selfless act of registering could ultimately save my life and those of other people suffering from blood cancer or blood disorders.” May said.
You can register as potential blood stem cell donors at www.dkms.org.uk
