Following the day we invited award winners Dane and Aston Bradford-Disney to tell us more about why they won the special recognition award.
Mr Disney, Dane, Dylan, Aston and Riley all came to visit us at SOS.
Aston was diagnosed with Leukaemia and has spent most of the last year in and out of hospital. Dane, Aston’s older brother saved his life by donating bone marrow.
He started off at Leicester Royal infirmary and was later transferred to Nottingham where he received Chemotherapy treatment. The transplant operation was conducted at a hospital in Sheffield. Thanks to Dane’s selfless decision to donate bone marrow to his brother, Aston has now made a full recovery.
