I recently found out that friends of mine have twins that are very sick.
I used to work with this couple and in November 2006 they were blessed with twin boys. Just before Christmas one of the boys was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia and not long after that the discovered that the other twin also had the same type of leukaemia. What were the chances of both of them having the same horrible disease?
Both of the boys have just been through chemo and are having bone marrow transplants within the coming weeks.
I wasn’t going to donate DD’s cord blood but changed my mind. The blood that was donated could someday save some child’s life.
When you hear personal stories like thing, especially when you know the people involved it really does make you think.
