For My UK Friends (and everyone else)

Posted Jul 21 2008 10:09am

Adrian Sudburyof the UK has an incredibly rare type of fact, he has been told that he is the only person in the world to have been diagnosed with this exact condition.

Although it is too late for a bone marrow transplant to save him, Adrian wants to make a lasting difference for years to come. He is attempting to make it compulsory for 16-17 year olds in the UK to receive education about bone marrow, blood and organ donation at college by taking on the government and the media. Having already had meetings with the Prime Minister and having been on TV and radio, Adrian has set up aPetition(UK residentsonlymay sign) with well over 8000 signatures to date.

Because of Tricia's recent diagnosis, bone marrow has now entered our radar as something that may (very small possibility) affect our lives in a very direct way sometime in the future. I encourage you (especially if you're a resident of the UK) to take a look at Adrian's blog and consider signing his petition.

BTW, today is Adrian's 27th birthday.
