Family's call for bone marrow donors

The family of a toddler with a rare bone disease are campaigning for more Asian people to become bone marrow donors.

Three year old Guarav Bains was given a lifesaving transplant, but at first his parents struggled to find a donor.

Bone marrow is found in the middle of many bones in the human body and makes blood cells.

During a transplant damaged or destroyed marrow is replaced with healthy marrow.

The family's campaign has generated a huge increase in the number people coming forward as bone barrow donors.
