Yoga instructor and mother-of-two, Tania, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia in May 2016. Doctors have now told her that a blood stem cell donation from a matching donor is her best chance of survival.
A warm, caring and loving soul, Tania is a strong believer in the power of positive thinking and loves nothing more than spending time with family and friends in the sunshine. She lives in a small seaside town with her husband, Kris, and children, Tayla and Kalan.
Anyone aged 17-55 and in general good health could be a matching donor for Tania, but it is most likely to be someone who shares her Balkan/British heritage.
If you are eligible to register as a potential blood stem cell donor, please do so below. You could be a match for Tania, or anyone else in need of a blood stem cell donation.
