Hundreds expected to attend stem cell donor event for Burnham boy Laughlin
3:00pm Tuesday 25th February 2014 in News
More than 200 people inspired by a schoolboy fighting leukaemia are expected to attend a stem cell donor event.
Laughlin ‘Lockey’ Whiteley, seven, is due to undergo a bone marrow transplant tomorrow.
Family and friends have set up Unlock a Life for Lockey to encourage people to donate stem cells to help children with cancer.
A registration event is being held on Saturday at Laughlin’s school, St Mary’s Primary School in Marsh Road, Burnham, from 11am to 4pm.
Anyone in good health aged between 18 and 55 can be a potential donor.
Anyone who cannot attend can email email@example.com
