Maggie by the beach

14-year-old Maggie is currently in hospital and urgently needs a stem cell transplant to cure her Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

When we were told that a stem cell transplant was her only option, it felt like another punch in the gut. The hits just kept on coming, especially when at the same time we were informed that her older brother was not a match.

Maggie is looking for a match anywhere in the world, and is urging those aged 16-30 and in the UK to join our register.

We see others go about their daily lives outside the hospital, or on social media. Our lives stopped and went on this strange pause on Oct 21st. We are praying for the day that we can press play again.

We are sharing this to make people aware of how easy and important it is to go on the register. It saves lives.
