Daniel De Gale, Beverly De Gale and Orin Lewis

Daniel De Gale first came to the public consciousness 11 years ago when his drive to find a bone marrow donor was broadcast on London’s local TV station. Daniel’s condition acted as a catalyst for his mother Beverley De Gale, and his step father Orin Lewis, to start the African Caribbean Leukemia Trust (ACLT) and begin to recruit donors for the bone marrow register.

Daniel was found donor and he was able to beat the cancer that had threatened his life. Sadly on October 8th 2008, Daniel De Gale died as a result of an illness unrelated to the cancer that had threatened his early life.

He is remembered by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide for his work and for his generous nature. His work to help his parents recruit more people of African and Asian descent to the national bone marrow register goes on, and if you haven’t registered to give blod, then please consider attending a recruitment drive (details via the ACLT website)
