A good Evertonian’s wife is in hospital suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and is in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant.

The team at University College Hospital London have been searching the world donor bank for a match as there is no family match.

With Ruby’s family being of Latin American origins, finding a match is proving difficult.

They are hoping that Evertonians the world over can push the message out, particularly to fans of American / Latin American heritage which will hopefully raise awareness and encourage more people to join the donor bank.

Read Ruby's personal appeal on Twitter or on Facebook

You can join the donor bank in the UK here: https://www.dkms.org.uk/en/register-now or in the USA here https://www.dkms.org/en/register and we encourage you to share the message via social media.

Hi. Just a quick message to the editors of the site. Wondering whether these kind of news items can be made more visible – on a mobile, they appear so far down. Would perhaps be read more and so get more attention.
