A TODDLER has been given a successful bone marrow transplant after his six-year-old brother donated life-saving cells. Two-year-old J'Ssiah Brown, from Kenley, has been fighting leukaemia since June last year and has gone through several rounds of chemotherapy to no avail. Recently we reported how his older brother Kyerell had to step up and go through surgery to extract some of his cells. Two weeks ago, the toddler was given the transplant which has since "grafted well", according to his grandmother, Angela Da Costa. J'Ssiah was taken to hospital last Thursday with a collapsed lung and a failing liver, but Ms Da Costa said: "He just needs a bit of time. "He has been fighting for over a year and is very tired. "The transplant worked well though and this illness is because of the chemotherapy he had. "He's all wired up now but the doctors believe he will pull through and survive."
