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