Help Local London Girl Find Stem Cell Donor

Hi all,

I am posting to raise awareness for Stoke Newington based girl, Talia Tosun.

In April, Talia was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) and at the end of August, she was informed that she needs a bone marrow transplant due to chemotherapy being ineffective. Unfortunately, her sister isn’t a match, nor is anybody currently on the Anthony Nolan Register. Talia is of Turkish Cypriot descent and her best possible match would be from somebody of the same ethnicity, however, there is currently a huge lack of black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) donors. It is vital that we raise awareness to diversify the register and to ensure Talia and others have a chance of getting lifesaving stem cells. We’re now on a desperate hunt to find Talia a match.

If any of you could share the page on social media or share with any friends who fit the criteria – this could have massive impact and could potentially save Talia’s life.

Any support is much appreciated!

Thanks,

Lucy
