17-year-old Charlie is a keen boxer and has just qualified as a chef in the Royal Navy. He was about to start his submarine training when he was diagnosed with Aplastic Anaemia. Now he urgently needs to find a matching donor for a stem cell transplant.
If you're aged 16-30 you can give Charlie, and others like him, hope for a second chance of life by joining the stem cell register.
Charlie was given some leave and his concerned mum, Danielle, took him to their local GP. A full set of bloods were taken and later that day the family received a call to tell them that Charlie’s blood results were dangerously low, and he needed to be admitted to hospital straight away. At the hospital Charlie was diagnosed with Aplastic Anaemia and this is where his transplant journey begins.
