Thousands people queued in the middle of the rain to donor their blood for this poor boy


IllustrationIllustration - Five-year-old boy from Worcester, England experienced a difficult life. His name is Oscar Saxelby-Lee who had acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Quoted from the Daily Mail, Oscar was diagnosed in December last year after his parents found bruises on his body, but the cause was not clear. His cancer also developed very rapidly.

This type of cancer is a rare cancer that only affects around 650 people in the UK every year. This is an aggressive cancer that grows quickly which causes a large number of undeveloped white blood cells to be released from the diseased bone marrow. These cells continue to spread and cause symptoms such as fatigue, difficulty of breathing, pale skin, fever, and pain in the bones and joints.

Oscar has had 20 blood transfusions and chemotherapy for four weeks. But he must get a more aggressive type of treatment to deal with his illness. The doctor asked Oscar's parents Olivia Saxelby and Jamie Lee to immediately get donor stem cells or blood stem cells within three months to increase his chance to live.

His parents of course felt desperate to hear that from doctor. Until finally around 4,855 volunteers queued out in the rain and took over two school halls at the weekend, and they filled out stem cell donor registration forms for Oscar.
