New test results on a young girl from Staffordshire who underwent a bone marrow transplant after a worldwide appeal for a donor have revealed she remains disease free.

More than 50,000 people came forward to be tested as a result of the campaign to a find a suitable match for Margot Martini, after she was diagnosed with an extremely rare leukaemia.

It was supported by a number of celebrities including David Tennant, Gary Barlow and players from Wolverhampton Wanderers. A donor match was found in February.

Earlier this month Margot underwent a bone marrow aspirate procedure. The results show that Margot remains free from both Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) and Acute Myeloid Leukaemia clones.

Her family say they are 'very happy and relieved' at the news and that Margot is doing well with her recovery. She will continue to have regular ongoing tests for the next 18 months.

Margot's family are now encouraging more people to become potential blood stem cell donors.
