My friends little girl has recently been diagnosed with AML leukemia. she's told me about a petition that we and anyone we know can sign, which will hopefully make it routine for children with ds to have regular blood tests done in order to detect it early. Please take the time its at, petitions.number10.gov.uk/dsleukemiatest/
thanks in advance I know we could make a big difference to the numbers of people already signed.
I too have a friend whose son has leukaemia(he also has DS). In our area our children don't get annual blood tests , they get the every 2 years. My friend's boy just kept picking up bug after bug , virus after virus so they did the blood checks & found the leukaemia. He has been on treatment now for about 2 years
