Lara's just 24, and she's been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia. She needs a stem cell transplant, but with her Thai-Italian heritage, she has a rare tissue type.
We urgently need to find her a matching donor.
If you're aged 16-30 and in good health, you can support Lara and thousands of other people in need by signing up to the Anthony Nolan register today.
Since Lara and her family launched their appeal, we've seen some huge spikes in our web traffic - so if you're having difficulty signing up, please do try again later.
If you're interested, you can also support Anthony Nolan's work with a donation; every single potential donor costs us £40 to sign up, so funds are vital towards our lifesaving cause.
