Manitoba family searching for stem cell match for baby with leukemia

A Manitoba family has begun a desperate search across Canada for a stem cell donor for their baby boy, who has a type of leukemia unresponsive to chemotherapy.

The match is particularly difficult to find because 13-month-old Tegveer Minhas has an Indian background, which means a successful donor will almost certainly need to come from the Indian community.

The family is encouraging anyone who think they may be a match to visit the Canadian Blood Services Clinic in Winnipeg at 777 William Avenue.

For more information on stem cell donations and how to register, visit the Canadian Blood Services website.
