In June this year, 16 year old Akhona Xaba became the first person in KZN to receive a stem cell transplant at Durban’s Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital. Akhona suffers from acute myeloid leukaemia, which is cancer of the body’s white blood cells. These cells are produced by a part of the body called bone marrow which fights infection.
