Evie McClean is a member of MDS UK Patients Support. In July 2014, when she was 8 years old, Evie was diagnosed with leukemia. After 4 months of chemo she had 6 month of remission, but then she became ill again. In July 2015 she was diagnosed with MDS and bravely endured more bouts of chemo. In November Evie received a bone marrow transplant.
Evie says: "It was a 10 out of 10 match, in the US, and she was 35 years old. I cannot thank her enough for saving my life.
On November 4th I had my transplant and I’ve now have a second birthday! Yay!"
