Helping to save the lives of people like Esme
The partnership will also help us to find even more lifesaving matches for people with blood cancer or a blood disorder – just like we did for Esme.
Esme Clayson was just three years old when she was diagnosed with juvenile myelomonocytic leukaemia. As if this shock diagnosis wasn’t enough, Esme’s parents were given the devastating news that her only chance of survival would be a bone marrow transplant.
Anthony Nolan launched a worldwide search and a match was found in Germany just a few months later. Tragically the transplant didn’t work and Esme became dangerously ill – ending up in intensive care. Six months later, Esme received a second transplant with bone marrow from the same donor. Thankfully, this time it was a success and Esme is now a vivacious, giggly seven-year-old with her whole life ahead of her.
2015 was a milestone year for the Clayson family as Esme finally got to meet the man who saved her life – her donor Andreas Haber.
A lifesaving match
Through fundraising events, in-store promotions and customer interaction, Tile Giant are helping us raise awareness to ensure our register of potential lifesavers continues to grow.
