Fletcher's transplant

Fletcher Densley is my youngest nephew. He is 2 years old and has a rare disease called Wiskott- Aldrich Syndrome. Without a bone marrow transplant he will not live to see his teenage years. My sister Olivia and her husband, Andrew, have 5 children, 1 other with Wiskott-Aldrich. Cooper Densley (Fletcher’s older brother and Wiskott sufferer) is now 5 and has successfully had a transplant from one of his siblings. He is a happy and healthy young child post transplant. Unfortunately none of the other siblings are a donor match for Fletcher. He has been listed on the world wide donor registry since birth but no donors are a match. Typically Wiskott-Aldrich kids become extremely ill by age 3 and spend almost all their time in hospital fighting infection, bleeding issues and illness. A simple bump on the head or a common cold can be fatal at this stage. With Fletcher already 2, my sister has no choice but to try and have another child through IVF that will be guaranteed to be a match for little Fletchy. Olivia and Andrew had saved 50k for a house deposit but have exhausted all these savings on IVF so far. Without a bone marrow transplant Fletcher WILL die , not maybe, not if, but when..... As a brother and Uncle I didn’t know what I could do to help so I have turned to gofundme to try and  raise money to help support my sister and her family in covering some of the cost associated with IVF. Each round of IVF is approx $12,000 ,so you can imagine the $50,000 they have spent has not gone very far. I would ask you to imagine having to watch your child become increasingly sick knowing that the outcome will be the loss of a precious young life..... ONLY A BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT WITH A DONOR MATCH WILL SAVE FLETCHY Any donations to help out will be greatly appreciated.
A small donation from a large group of people can change my sister’s life .....
