Lara Casalotti: Leukaemia sufferer reveals reveals donor match

A north London student who was diagnosed with leukaemia has found a stem cell donor after a celebrity-backed viral campaign inspired thousands to donate.

Lara Casalotti, from Hampstead, needs a stem cell transplant but her "unique" Thai and Italian heritage meant a mixed-race donor was required.
