Hello,

I really did not want to disturb you with this but I had no one else to turn to. I\'m in London, UK to see my cousin who lives here. He\'s critically ill and needs family support. He was diagnosed with (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) - a type of Blood Cancer in 2005 and had been undergoing treatment since. The chemotherapy treatment was going fine until last week when the doctor noticed that the disease has relapsed and the only way he can survive is by undergoing a BMT (Bone Marrow Transplantation). My sister whose marrow matched his has agreed to be the donor and he shall be undergoing the transplant soon at The Princess Grace Hospital London. The estimate for the transplant is £9,000. I have already spent approx. £7,500 towards his treatment. Since the amount is huge, I request you to lend out a helping hand and support me with a loan of £1,500. Since I don\'t know your financial status at the moment, any kind of help whatsoever will be deeply appreciated. Your help and support will give him a chance to live a normal life once again. There is nothing called a small help when the heart giving it is big. Any amount will be accepted with gratitude and paid back after the surgery. Please let me know how much you can loan to provide you with the details to get the money to me and I will pay back as soon as I return.

I will check my email every 30 minutes for your reply.

Thanks for your help.
