Six-year-old Rianna Deol has acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Her doctors say she has just four months to receive a life-saving bone marrow transplant. From Kent Online:
Now the family, with the support of the Anthony Nolan Trust, are holding a series of clinics to give the community the chance to give Rianna the gift of life.

These clinics will be held across Dartford, Belvedere, and Gravesend. Mrs Deol said if a match is found, the procedure to donate is simple and involves a small amount of healthy bone marrow from the donor, which gives the recipient the chance to produce healthy blood cells.

A likely match for Rianna could come from anyone.

To become a donor call 020 7284 1234.
