On the 23rd July 2018 Marley who is 6 years old got diagnosed with a rare life threatening serious condition called Severve Aplastic Anaemia (SAA) and he needs a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) to save his life. Aplastic Anaemia is a condition which basically means that your bone marrow doesn’t work properly and it doesn’ produce enough blood cells that your body needs.
Our biggest hope for a match was Marley’s little brother George who is 4 would of been a match but unfortunately he wasn’t.
So that’s when we started Marrow for Marley. We decided to go public with our appeal to encourage people from all over the world to join up to the bone marrow register. Since we started we have recruited and amazing 30,000+ people and this is just in our local area. We do not plan to stop anytime soon until we find a match for our darling boy.
