Teenage girls are inspirational

I HAVE so much admiration for both Alex Turner, who has had a rare laryngeal cancer, and Erin Buyers, who has had leukaemia.

Their teenage lives have been disrupted by gruelling treatments, yet they have raised huge amounts of money for cancer charities.

They are absolutely amazing teenagers to be very proud of.

In March 1990, I was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia, in my 20s.

My supportive family were tested and fortunately my sister was the same tissue type match for my bone marrow transplant in 1991.

You could possibly be a potential match if you sign up to the Anthony Nolan Trust.
