This amazing gift had arrived thanks to a charity we had never heard of before and a donor we may never meet.
"Lucas was born in November 2010 and, very quickly, we realised he was having some health problems. Before he was six months old, he was diagnosed with Wiskott Aldrich syndrome, a rare blood condition. Doctors told us he would need a bone marrow transplant."
"It was an emotional day when the small red bag of donor cells arrived at Lucas’ hospital bedside and was infused into his little body."
"That day was a real turning point for us. We went from feeling completely devastated to a sense that things were going to turn out ok. It gave us hope and, while things were still difficult for another year as Lucas battled to get better, we always had a light at the end of the tunnel from that point."
"As a family, it moved us from facing a huge problem to having a solution and that’s very powerful."
