‘WE’RE DES­PER­ATELY HOP­ING A MATCH WILL BE FOUND SOON’

Sunderland Echo - - News -

Graeme Bowser’s for­mer col­leagues are among those who are lend­ing their sup­port to the #hero­forchloe cam­paign. Tyne and Wear Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice (TWFRS) was ap­proached by grandad-of-four Graeme after it had pre­vi­ously lent its sup­port to the ap­peal to help his grand­daugh­ter. Once again it is help­ing to spread the word to its staff, with other brigades also be­ing asked to pass on in­for­ma­tion to firefighters and other em­ploy­ees in the hope a stem cell match can be found for her, as well as oth­ers on the wait­ing list. A spokes­woman for TWFRS said: “Nat­u­rally we want to do ev­ery­thing we can to help Chloe and her fam­ily. “And the best way we could think to sup­port her is by en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one who can to reg­is­ter on www.dkms.org.uk. “We sent Chloe’s story and de­tails of the char­ity to all our 800 staff, and con­tacted the wider fire ser­vice fam­ily in Northum­ber­land FRS; County Durham and Dar­ling­ton FRS and Cleve­land Fire Brigade to do the same. “We’re de­lighted that they were more than will­ing to share Chloe’s story and en­cour­age their own staff to reg­is­ter. “We’re des­per­ately hop­ing a match will be found soon and would urge ev­ery­one to reg­is­ter.” Any­one who would like to find out more can visit Chloe’s DBA Fight #ahero­forchloe.
