#SAVEMAYBROWN CAMPAIGN SAVES THE LIFE OF YOUNG MUM

On 30th January, May Brown received donated stem cells from her sister Martha!  If you have followed May’s story, you will know this has been a long time coming.

On the day of donation, our very own co-founder Beverley De-Gale and PR & Communications Manager Ronke Oke were at King’s College Hospital with both Martha and May for moral support.

Martha Williams donating her stem cells

Martha Williams (26), who lives in Nigeria attended an appointment at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, London, and successfully donated her stem cells.  After the simple procedure (which is very much like donating blood), May, who was also being treated at King’s College Hospital, received the donated stem cells from her sister at 6 pm, the same day.

Catch the full update on May’s story tonight at 6 pm on ITV News.

May Brown said:

“I am overwhelmed the transplant has taken place. I didn’t have much sleep the night before due to being anxious at what was lying ahead, but I was then and am now, filled with so much joy! This opportunity has given me a second chance at life; enabling me to go back to being a mother to my beautiful daughter. I will forever be grateful to the great British public for the support they gave during my appeal and to London-based blood cancer charity ACLT, for the tremendous support and love they have shown me. They have truly have gone over and above for my family and me.”
