Boy With Rare Cancer Finally Finds Stem Cell Donor Match After 10,000 Offers

A five-year-old boy fighting a rare cancer has finally found a stem cell donor match after 10,000 offers.

Oscar Saxelby-Lee was in a race against time to find a life-saving match after he was diagnosed with rare cancer T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (T-ALL).

The disease is caused by bone marrow being unable to produce enough normal blood cells.

His desperate parents launched an appeal to find a stem cell match, leading to thousands coming forward.


Thousands queued up to get tested after Pitmaston Primary School, in Worcester, opened their doors for a donor search earlier this month.

Now, Oscar's mum Olivia has taken to Facebook to share the amazing news that a match has been found.
