Finley Cripps, a 5-year-old boy from the United Kingdom, will be helping save his 3-year-old brothers life thanks to a bone marrow translation.

Ollie Cripps, the recipient, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and had finally finished months of chemotherapy when they seemed to have handled. Then, he relapsed and is desperate need of a transplant.

Ollie has his brother Finley and two sisters Ellie and Evie and all were tested to see if they were potential matches.

“We were very nervous to say the least, as they had informed us that there was a one-in-four chance that one of the siblings would be a match,” said Fiona Cripps, the boys’ mother.

Thankfully, all three siblings turned out to be a match!

Fiona added: “We are so overwhelmed with everyone’s generosity. We think as a family it’s so important to support them as they are potentially saving our little boy’s life, because of this we want to be able to give something back.

‘We could easily just donate the money to the hospital. But we want to be able to see that we’ve made a difference to the families that use the play room and all the nurses there.’

The Go Fund Me campaign has nearly raised £1,000 for the Royal Marsden, where Ollie is being treated.

Big brother Finley was the doctor’s first choice over his sisters because he is the oldest and of the same sex.

‘We could easily just donate the money to the hospital. But we want to be able to see that we’ve made a difference to the families that use the play room and all the nurses there.’

In support of his older brother, Finley asked his hairdresser to shave his hair off, like Ollie — but his parents said he should first help raise money for the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, through a fundraising page they have set up. And the link to the GoFundMe.
