On reading about the Midnight Walk for the Anthony Nolan Trust, I thought you might like to hear of a success story. My son-in-law was on the register for some time and was found to be a match for a young boy in Germany.

On reading about the Midnight Walk for the Anthony Nolan Trust, I thought you might like to hear of a success story.My son-in-law was on the register for some time and was found to be a match for a young boy in Germany. It was a great success. The boy is now at university in Hamburg. At first, they could not be in touch, but now write. He is so grateful and says his life was saved. The parents have been in touch as well and say he is doing so well and they are delighted.I hope this will encourage others - and my son-in-law won't be cross!Trudy Smith,27 Egremont Road, Exmouth.
