Loving wife, mother, and grandmother, Sipy, has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia


Sipy is a loving wife, mother, and grandmother from London. In December 2016, instead of celebrating her 65th birthday, Sipy and her family were sadly given the news that she had been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.

Sipy has now been told she needs a blood stem cell donation from a matching donor to give her the best chance of survival. A two minute cheek swab is all you need to register as a potential blood stem cell donor.

Sipy & her family

You could be a matching donor for Sipy, or anyone else in need of a blood stem cell donation. If you are between the ages of 17-55 please register as a potential blood stem cell donor today.

Sipy's daughters said: "Nobody ever wants to hear those words spoken to them or to their loved ones…. ‘You have Cancer.’ Today the reality is 1 in 2 people are diagnosed with cancer and our mum is one of them.”

Sipy & her grandchildren

Sipy is well known and loved in her community and can often be found caring for others or hosting dinners for her extended family and friends.

She is currently undergoing her 2nd round of chemotherapy while the search for a matching donor continues.
