New Harvey's gang visitors in Dundee

The Dundee team were joined by Arek (7) sister Ala (3) Mum Magda (and Sonic the elephant) 

They had a Harvey's gang tour around the blood transfusion laboratory.  

Arek was receiving chemo last year for a Wilm's tumour and had 9 red cell transfusion and 1 platelet transfusion during treatment.  

He is now finished with chemo and onto 2 visits a month for check ups.

We were able to show the different types of components that Arek was transfused last year and the different ways they are stored.  

The blood grouping analyser was also a hit with its flashing lights and robot arm.

We loved having Arek and Ala (and Sonic) join us wearing their awesome wellies.

Fantastic to see and well done Lesley and the team at Dundee, another GREAT day.
