Graham Barnell was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) on the 13th April 2007. The only chance of a cure was for him to receive a Bone Marrow Transplant.

The Red Cross in Australia searched the Bone Marrow Registries worldwide for 9 months to find a match but Graham has a rare tissue type and a match was not found.

Thanks to generous donations of over $400,000, Graham was able to travel from his home in Melbourne, Australia to Seattle in the USA for life-saving treatment in April 2008. 

He was the 8th person in the world to receive Stem Cell Transplant using manipulated stem cells from two umbilical cords.

The treatment was a complete success and he is now leukaemia free. 

He is back in Melbourne, recovering from the treatment but still has outstanding medical bills of $416,000.
