How do you say ‘no’ when a mother asks you to save her child’s life?
Lifeline has never said ‘no’ when there was a medical chance of saving a life. Our
very first patient was originally given a 5%
chance by doctors at Hammersmith Hospital (it later improved to 15% when a good bone
marrow donor was found). 5% sounded
to us a whole lot better than 0% which was the chance if he didn’t receive a bone
More than twenty years later ‘A’ is a chef and is in excellent health.
As parents it is unimaginable that you would not do everything in your power to save
your child’s life, and it is our aim to
give parents without resources the same chance that our own children would have.
