One Sunday morning our community came together to make a video...
September 21, 2013
On Sunday 22nd September a group of friends and neighbours in a leafy London borough came together to do something good and fun for someone who'd been through a hell of a time.
Alex has suffered from a very rare immune disorder (CGD) all his life. The only way to cure CGD is by having a bone marrow transplant.
Four weeks ago Alex had the transplant and as of today has spent six weeks in isolation at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The really fabulous news is that the transplant has taken and, although he has a very very long way to go, things are looking great for Alex.
So, back to last Sunday when, after very little notice, about 80 friends and neighbours came together in our local park to film this to cheer Alex up as he's been a bit homesick and to say "good on ya fella, you did it!"
Special thanks to each and every person who gave up their time to make a slightly drunken spontaneous idea happen in such a short time. You're all amazing.
