A matching donor has been found for a two-year-old from Tipton, who has a rare blood disorder, Monosomy 7 Syndrome.
Gaurav Bains was diagnosed in June this year, and doctors told the boy’s family that without a bone marrow transplant before Christmas, he would be likely to develop an aggressive form of childhood leukaemia.
The family have been working with blood cancer charity, Anthony Nolan, to appeal for potential donors to come forward.
Gaurav is set to have a bone marrow transplant in December.
