BBC 1's 'The One Show' featured a special report to highlight 13 year-old Zara's appeal to find a matching blood stem cell donor.

Thousands of people registered with us overnight as a result of the appearance!

Journalist Lucy Siegle interviewed Zara's father Loua and our Senior Donor Recruitment Manager, Joe Hallett.

The programme is available to watch here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0717t4t

Zara urgently needs a blood stem cell donation to get better but there are currently no suitable matching donors for her. As Zara has mixed Arabic and English heritage, it is harder to find a match for her as tissue type is determined by ancestry.

Thank you to all that have registered and supported so far.
