Sick Toddler Has Bone Marrow Transplantation

One-year-old James Hynes, from Dundrod, UK has undergone what could be a life-saving bone marrow transplant operation in Germany. Doctors told his parents earlier in the year that the infant could not be saved. After an extensive public campaign, the NHS agreed to fund the surgery. His parents found a German doctor through a website and he agreed to perform the surgery privately. The Eastern Health and Social Services Board agreed to give Ģ100,000 for the operation after doctors agreed the kid had a chance. However there is only a 20 to 30 percent chance of success. "We've got the chance - now it's in God's hands. We just hope it keeps everything at bay," said James' father Jim. "We were a bit worried this morning, because he didn't seem his normal self, but within minutes of seeing us coming through the door, he just brightened up again."
