From Pakistan Daily:
A Hounslow woman is facing a race against time to find a bone marrow donor from the Asian community that will save the life of her leukaemia-stricken niece.

Determined Monica Grewal, 37, has made an emotional plea for people to come forward and help six-year-old Rianna Deol get her desperately-needed transplant.

But because individual genetic make-up is so varied, her best chance of a match is from someone of the same ethnic background - and only 4 per cent of donors on the Anthony Nolan Trust's bone marrow register are Asian.

Mrs Grewal has urgently called for potential donors to join the register at a special clinic between midday and 4pm tomorrow (Sunday) at Saks Hair and Beauty Salon at the David Lloyd Club, Southall Lane, Hounslow.
