The Dundee team had Leah (7) and her sister Kayleigh (11) visit the laboratory. Mum (Elaine), Dad (Stephen) and Chaplain (Andrew) also joined the visit (phew, no pressure then!).
Leah has finished treatment for an astrocytoma and is now onto 6 monthly visits.
We were able to show Leah and Kayleigh the different types of components that are available, Leah has had numerous red cell transfusions in the past.
After a quick teaching session at the microscope (and the cool nail polish reveal)
we also found out that dad Stephen has actually transported red cells and platelets for us in the past to Perth Royal Infirmary.
Both mum and dad were very interested in seeing and hearing about everything, as was the Chaplain who was visiting so that he can get a better understanding of how we work.
Both girls left wearing their lab coats and happy with their goody bags.
