I don't use Facebook but it is a very sad story. Perhaps there should be a petition.

Hi all,

This has been reported and so we are moving it over to petitions now.

Please do keep it BUMPED!

If its to donate bone marrow, aren't donations sent internationally anyway? Not allowing the brother into the UK wouldn't necessarily prevent him being able to donate bone marrow.

The brother didn't need to be physically in the country according to one report....
