New Blog: Aidan in Hospital
Aidan has leukaemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. Otherwise the prognosis is very poor. Without treatment he will not live another year.
No sibling was a match and no suitable donor was found in Japan because of his ethnicity. As a long-term resident of Japan, he is no longer eligible for treatment in the UK, his home country. The only hope left for him is a world-wide search, a process not covered under the Japanese National Health Insurance. Aidan needs at least ¥3, 500, 000.
Our immediate goal is to help Aidan and his family. Money will mean he can proceed with a life-saving transplant.
