Ashborune News Telegraph editor Stephen Sinfield has used the front page of his title to appeal for donors to help save his wife’s life.
Sinfield, who has been editor of the paper for five years, used its front page to ask readers for bone marrow donors to come forward to help his wife Katherine who has been diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia.
With the headline ‘Help me save my wife’ spoke of the ordeal the pair had faced since Katherine’s diagnosis earlier this year.
"Being thrown into this situation certainly makes you think twice about helping others. It would be nice if one of Katherine's volunteers would be found to be a match but, even if they're not, it's reassuring to know that they could be helping another family in this town or this county who are going through the same torment,” he told the Burton Mail.
The newspaper is now campaigning for people to donate and give blood while aiding its editor’s personal cause.
