Do you have the potential to be the match that Kofi needs for his blood stem cell transplant, which is crucial for his recovery from Hodgkin’s lymphoma?
Kofi Blair is a 20-year-old football fan living in Ballymoney with his family.
He was diagnosed with the illness in September 2021 after experiencing symptoms of excessive sweating, fatigue, and a lump on the left side of his neck.
After undergoing various tests and treatments, Kofi’s doctors have now recommended a stem cell transplant as the next step. Unfortunately, none of Kofi’s family members are a match, so are now appealing for an unrelated donor to potentially save his life.
Kofi’s family became aware of the importance of stem cell donors through the #DoitforDaniel campaign, which has already helped someone else undergoing a successful transplant. Now, they hope that a similar outcome can be achieved for Kofi.
