Bismillah. This is a prayer & bone-marrow donor registration request for Andrew McFadden, brother of Rachel North, and for two Afro-Caribbean kids in our local area, as well as for anyone needing a bone-marrow transplant.
Bone-marrow matches are ethnicity-specific, so if you are white you can help Andrew. More Afro-Caribbean and Asian donors are needed anyway, since they are under-represented in the national register.
I am pleased to say that I am a registered donor alhamdulillah and our ANT car bumper sticker advertises for more donors (see above).
Please visit the websites of the Anthony Nolan Trust, the Afro-Caribbean Leukaemia Trust and Ibrahim’s Appeal for more information.
The ACLT recently said that fear of blood samples being used for DNA profiling was discouraging AC and Asian donors. Such fears are unfounded, of course, but illustrate some of our sad social problems. But with the help of Allah Most Generous, we can succeed!
