Mixed-race woman with leukaemia - level 1
This news is about a woman. She is 24 years old. She is mixed-race. She is Thai-Italian. She is ill. She has leukaemia.
She must have a transplant. It is hard to find a donor for her. It is hard because she is mixed-race.
Her family and an organisation help her. They ask people for help. In the end, they find a donor. The woman is getting a transplant next month.
Difficult words: race (a person who is part of a group that looks the same), transplant (an operation to move a body part from one person to another), donor (a person who donates – gives a part of his or her body to help somebody).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
