Alicia and Micah (cousin and sister to Lilya) are raising money for Cancer Research and awareness of the #FindamatchforLilya campaign. Lilya is 12 years old and was diagnosed with leukaemia in Nov 18.

A few months ago (November) Lilya was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ETP-ALL).

She immediately started treatment but suffered a huge setback when she contracted sepsis, which meant that Christmas was spent in an intensive care unit at Queens Medical Centre. Lilya has spent a further three months in hospital as her body has fought this and other subsequent infections.

Lilya started the #FindamatchforLilya campaign with friends and family to find a bone marrow match for herself and many others.

This campaign has caught attention of the press, including ITV and BBC.

Please sponsor us to help children like Lilya.
