Hello, My name is Laughlin (LocKEY)......
On the 8th July 2011 our dear son Laughlin Lewis Whiteley was taken into Great Ormond Street Hospital for removal of a brain tumour "Medulloblastoma". Laughlin made a huge recovery and faced 12 to 18mths of treatment! With six weeks of radiotherapy and then chemo! Laughlin was so brave and just amazing and always keeps giggling and sparkling like a star!
And now it is Round 2. Laughlin was diagnosed with treatment related AML Leukaemia on Friday 15/11/13 and was admitted to GOSH on Monday 25/11/13 to begin the first 6 week round of treatment. This may be followed by further rounds, with a bone marrow transplant as the final element. LocKEY continues to dig deep into the treasure of his heart, facing all this with calmness and openness.
Unlock a Life for LocKEY was founded in January 2014 to help 'unlock' matches for Stem Cell Donors, plus give advice and support for families of children that have been diagnosed with childhood cancer.

TOGETHER AGAINST BLOOD CANCER
Blood cancer is a curable cancer if a lifesaving match can be found
Launched in February with a key aim: to increase the pool of lifesaving stem cell donors. A stem cell donation is often the only successful lifesaving treatment, but only if a match can be found. With this in mind, we believe that not one single person suffering with blood cancer should die because of a lack of a match.
