Chloe’s DBA fight: Seven year old girl who needs transplant
Written by Scott McGerty on 23rd March 2018
People in Sunderland are being urged to try and help save the life of a seven year old girl who needs a bone marrow transplant.
Seven year old Chloe from Sunderland suffers from the rare condition Diamond Blackfan Anemia, this means her body doesn’t produce red blood cells.
Chloe now needs regular blood transfusions to stay alive and has recently developed antibodies in her blood meaning she now urgently needs a blood stem cell donation.
Her family have launched an online campaign using #AHeroForChloe to try and find a matching donor however despite this, one has not yet been found.
Now her family are holding an event next week to try and find an eligible donor.
The event next Wednesday (28th March) is being held at Kayll Road Library where people can take a simple swab test to see if they could be a donor for seven year old Chloe.
Chloe’s mum, Francesca, said: “Chloe amazes us every day with how brave she is. She loves fairy tales – now it’s time to find a hero for our princess!”
On her Facebook page she continued, “Chloe desperately needs a match and YOU have the chance to save her life”
“If you are aged between 17 and 55 pop in, have a swab and give this young lady the gift of life.”
If you can’t make the event you can also register now to save the life of Chloe or someone else with blood cancer by following this link.
There is also similar events where you can take a swab test taking place in April including at Cleveland Shopping Centre in Middlesbrough and Silksworth Ski slope.
