#SaveOurShahera urges the UK’s south Asian community to join the Anthony Nolan stem cell register
People adore two-year-old Shahera Khan. The toddler from Croydon, South West London, adores her older brother, five-year-old Amaan and loves playing with a toy kitchen.
The toy kitchen is at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Shahera has recently been diagnosed with a very rare immunodeficiency disorder. It’s a fault in her immune system and means Shahera is unable to produce enough white blood cells making her susceptible to infections.
