Matt’s Match Found!

We are extremely pleased and relieved to be able to announce that a suitable bone marrow match has been found for Matt and his transplant has taken place.

 We are now anxiously waiting to find out whether the donation has been successful. The new cells must ‘graft’ and begin to produce healthy bone marrow in Matt’s body.

 Doctors say Matt is doing well. Matt will remain in isolation for a number of weeks and hopes to return home sometime in the New Year.


would like to thank everyone who has supported the campaign in so many wonderful ways. Whilst Matt has received his match, there are still thousands of other matches needing to be found!


Please continue to visit Matt’s website. Your messages of support are a great boost to Matt and his parents; they also help to keep Matt in touch with the outside world! Matt and his parents will use the message wall to keep us all updated and ‘blog’ Matt’s progress.


will continue to be updated and will give details about how, in the New Year, Matt’s Match is hoping to continue to make a difference!
