Nigerian Woman suffering from leukemia begs UK to give sister visa

A Nigerian woman who lives in the UK, May Brown, is battling leukemia, cancer of the blood or bone marrow.

The 23 year old young mother is in desperate need of a life-saving stem cell transplant but the Home Office will not let her donor-match sister who lives in Nigeria into the UK because she may not ‘be genuine’, Daily Mail reported.

The report said Ms Brown who was diagnosed with leukaemia last year, is pleading with officials to change their minds ‘to help save my life’.

She pledged to fund her sister’s visit, adding that her schoolteacher sister, who has two children in Nigeria, has ‘no desire’ to relocate to the UK.brown-2

Her sister is the only suitable match, found after what doctors at King’s College Hospital, London, confirmed was ‘an extensive search’ for another donor.

According to the report, Ms Brown, who has a two-year-old daughter with her ex-soldier husband Mike, said: ‘I was elated when I received the news Martha was a 10 out of 10 match.

‘But when I received notification her visa was rejected I felt distraught and helpless. My two-year-old daughter Selina needs me. She needs me to be back home with her, looking after her.

‘To know my life isn’t important to those who have the power to help me is deeply upsetting.

‘My life can be saved if my sister is granted to enter the UK to donate her stem cells. This is a six-hour journey which will help save my life.

‘I am begging for the UK Home Office to review their decision and grant my sister admission to the UK.’
