A little over ten years ago Melissa went from the picture of health to needing four blood or platelet transfusions every week. She was just 30 years old. Melissa needed a bone marrow transplant and Doug, a stranger living across the Atlantic, donated some of his stem cells and saved her life.
If you would like to register as a bone marrow donor or find out more about it, here's where to start:
