SPECIAL APPEAL: Lara Casalotti, 24, a student and humans rights advocate from Belsize Park in North London, has out of the blue fallen very ill with acute myeloid leukaemia, an aggressive form of leukaemia, that will require her to have a bone marrow transplant after months of chemotherapy. She needs to find a donor by April to save her life but being half Thai-Chinese and half Italian, makes it really hard to find a suitable donor. Even her one and only brother isn’t a match. Please join the organ register to help people like Lara. Less than 3% of donors on the worldwide bone marrow donor registry are of mixed race… and only a small portion of them are a Asian-European like Lara.
