Alex is nearly 24 yrs old and is from Essex.
Alex was 18 yrs old when he was diagnosed with a blood cancer called Classical Hodgkin’s Lymphoma 4B in April 2016.
He has relapsed 6 times now. Alex has had endless chemo and 2 stem cell transplants which failed to cure him.
In January 2020 he was given a trial drug that nearly killed him in February 2020.
The first stem cell transplant in November 2016 using his own cells failed as he relapsed in January 2017. The consultants contacted the register for donors but found no match for Alex. I (Mum) was asked if I would be a donor for my son as I was a 50% match. Alex received my cells in June 2017 and we thought this might do the trick. He had top ups of my cells DLI when he was well enough.
So with the news that after a year of remission from June 2020 to August 2021 his Hodgkin’s lymphoma has returned and his consultant said he is incurable.
There is a glimmer of hope and one more chance with an unrelated stem cell donor which is why we are asking for help.
Could you be his donor? Could you save his life?
