Rotherham United would like to make Millers fans aware of the activity planned by our hosts Queens Park Rangers this weekend in support of defender Jimmy Dunne’s efforts to find a donor for a 14-year-old friend who has leukamia.
The R's are backing Dunne’s mission by setting up a mobile swab station at their FanZone at Loftus Road and are inviting both home and away supporters to join in their quest to find someone who may be able to help.
On June 1st, Daniel was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). He began chemotherapy just five days later and, after 25 doses of three drugs given over a 10-day period, his family were told Daniel would need a bone marrow transplant.
Daniel is a close family friend of Dunne’s and the R’s defender is asking supporters to take up the opportunity to see if they are a match and can save the youngster’s life.
DKMS will be setting up a swab station in the Academia Fan Zone at PlayFootball on South Africa Road.
This simple procedure takes five minutes – and could give Daniel and his family the breakthrough they are desperately seeking.
On Saturday, the QPR squad will warm up in t-shirts showing their support for the #DoItForDaniel campaign.
If you’re aged 17-55 and in general good health, please consider participating in the swab testing before this weekend's game.
DKMS will be in position at PlayFootball from 12.30pm-2.30pm this Saturday.
