7th June 2004 Dear Friends
Unexpectedly we had news last week (7 June) that a donor had been found for Aimee. With no match in the family and a rare tissue type giving her a one in a million chance of finding a match we were stunned that in only eight weeks doctors had found a 9/10 match which greatly increases her chances of getting through the immediate post transplant period – Aimee is delighted with the news
There are still very difficult days ahead but at least there is a path to follow now – it is hoped that things will kick off after her birthday on July 4th – with the transplant scheduled for July 15th – the first 4/5 weeks will be the most critical for her – we all hope and pray that she finds the strength and will to get through to the better days ahead
To everyone who has taken an interest sending messages of support, good wishes and your prayers for Aimee’s well being, your kindness is inspirational and helps us to face the challenge of each day and gives strength to the little patient.
I still don’t have Aimee’s new hospital address details but should you wish to write to her please use
