Most of us are lucky to be born with the ability to produce antibiotics against germs. Antibiotics are substance produced by the white cells in our blood. They kill harmful germs and so protect us against sickness.

However, some unfortunate people are born without the ability to produce antibiotics. They thus fall sick very easily and often die young.

Little Maurice Elias suffered from this condition. Some of his white blood cells did not work properly. He was almost a year old when doctor found this out. The sickly boy had by then spent more than half his life in the hospital.

Until recently, children with the same disease as Maurice’s would die within a year or so. Then, an American doctor name Professor Robert A Good discovered a new way of fighting the desease by transplanting bone marrow into the patient’s body. It contains special cells which mature into normal white blood cells. The antibiotics produced by these would fight off the harmful germ.

Maurice’s doctors decided to try this method. Maurice had three sisters and a brother, all of whom offered to donate some of their marrow to save him. The doctors finally chose thirteen-year-old Tami’s marrow because her body issues were the most like those of her brother. They first extracted about half a cupful of bone marrow from Tami’s hip and breast-bones with the help of a large, hollow needle. Them, they injected the healthy marrow into Maurice’s stomach.

The transplant saved Maurice, who was able to go home to his family two month later. Now, he can look forward to growing up big and strong, thanks to his sister’s loving gift.
