THE family of a young Islander who received a lifesaving bone marrow transplant a year ago this week have thanked Islanders for their support and donations during the past 12 months.
Exactly a year this week Joe Redmond, who is now aged four, underwent his transplant using bone marrow donated by his older sister Holly.
Islanders raised a total of £51,000 to help support the family during Joe’s journey and airline Blue Islands gave them free flights for the duration of his treatment.
