Dylan Bennett was diagnosed with an extremely rare disease shortly after his second birthday.
Little Dylan got very ill in the weeks following his diagnosis, and his parents were worried for his life.
Thankfully Joe Partridge, a father-of-two, came to te rescue and donated his stem cells to create a cure for Dylan.
Stem cells were taken from Joe's blood and were transfused into Dylan to cure his immune disorder.
Joe did not know Dylan or his family, but was just a concerned and generous stranger.
Last weekend, Joe and Dylan met for the first time among friends and family.
It's time to get the word out. Too few people know what a stem cell transplant is - or how it can save the life of someone with a blood cancer or blood disorder. That's why we're spreading the word across the UK. And we want your help. Together, we're #DrivenToCure. #news #transplant #bloodcancer #bloodcancerawarenessmonth #lifesaving #science #research #health
Dylan, who has made a full recovery,gave Joe a special gift: a toy lion wearing a T-shirt with the words "My Hero Joe. Thanks For Saving Me."
Wow! 4,000 followers - that's utterly amazing. We really love being a part of the Instagram community and hanging out with you guys, so thank you for making us feel so welcome. And it really matters, too. Raising awareness of blood cancer and stem cell transplants online saves lives - so let's keep spreading the word, into 2016 and beyond #celebrating #cancer #awareness #milestone #leukaemia #giveaspit
What a truly heartwarming story!
