COMMENT: A real superhero at the tender age of six

First published in News

RUFUS Taylor feels like a supehero, and we think he is one too. The brave six-year-old went under the knife to donate vital bone marrow to his sick little brother Herbie.

And his sacrifice is likely to have saved his siblings’ life.

His parents are rightly proud of their little superman, who is already back at school since the operation.

Had Rufus not had the right bone marrow, Herbie’s life would have beeen left hanging in the balance after being diagnosed with a dangerously low immune system.

It highlights the need for more donors, all of whom are potential life savers, to become superheroes.
