APPEAL: Help Local Enfield Girl Find Stem Cell Donor

The following appeal is posted on behalf the Swab For Talia Campaign:


Hello (Grange Park Residents),

I am writing to ask if there is any way you could aid us in helping a close friend and local London girl, Talia Tosun.

In April, Talia was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) and at the end of August, she was informed that she needs a bone marrow transplant due to chemotherapy being ineffective. Unfortunately, her sister isn’t a match, nor is anybody currently on the Anthony Nolan Register. Talia is of Turkish Cypriot descent and her best possible match would be from somebody of the same ethnicity, however, there is currently a huge lack of black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) donors. It is vital that we raise awareness to diversify the register and to ensure Talia and others have a chance of getting lifesaving stem cells. We’re now on a desperate hunt to find a match for Talia.

I was wondering if there is anything you can do to help, such share the page on social media or publish a post – this could have massive impact and could potentially save Talia’s life, if a match is found.

Any support is much appreciated!
