Boy with rare genetic disorder receives transplant


A devoted mum who believed a benign brain tumour had made her infertile told how the surprise baby she feared she would lose because of a rare genetic disorder is now living a normal life - thanks to a bone marrow transplant from a complete stranger. Former clinical psychologist Zoe Alderson, 33, told how her joy was short-lived when Henry, the son she and her husband Craig, 40, a graphic design company manager, never expected to have was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, affecting just 125 people in the UK - meaning he needed monthly blood transfusions.
