Bone Marrow Donor Plea
9:23am 21st September 2013
After nine year old Domenic Doyle from Falmouth received a transplant that saved his life, Pirate FM has learnt that 1800 people are waiting for bone marrow transplants across the country.
Neil Lovell signed up to the Anthony Nolan Trust's register, where he was found to be a perfect match for little Domenic who had fought off leukaemia twice.
The charity who helped save Domenic's life is calling for young men and anyone aged 16-30 to sign up.
Bone marrow donors are desperately needed to help save people's lives.
Karen Archer from the trust said: "We get a lot of people from all age groups, it could be someone's mum or dad or someone's grandparents, it is always someone's family member. We deal a lot with children as well. You just never know who your match might be.
When someone becomes a match they are literally becoming a lifesaver."
