Hard-hitting film highlights lack of stem cell donors

A blood cancer charity has released a short film which aims to highlight a lack of stem cell donors from black and ethnic minority communities. 

The African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust made the six minute film in memory of a Londoner who died from the disease last year, at the age of 24. 

Maddie Gatabaki, who wrote and directed the film, and Veronica Kararwa, whose son Kevin was the young man who died, explained more.
