#WearYellowForSeth

So I wanted to take some time off from the lazy nothings of this blog and urge you to #WearYellowForSeth.

Seth Lane, age 5, is a British “bubble” boy.  Born with almost no immune system, he has to live constantly in a sterile environment to avoid infection and other diseases.

I don’t know about you but anything that has the word “sterile” in it is hardly fun.

Huffington reports Seth is in The Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle, England, awaiting a bone marrow transplant (a second attempt after the first one failed).  He’s been there since January.

Now, Seth’s parents are making the rounds in the Internetverse, urging everyone to wear Seth’s favorite color on March 27.  They plan to print out the photos with the hashtag #WearYellowForSeth and pin on a laid out map where the photos come from.

Who can resist this?

So please please please be a doll and become this boy’s ray of sunshine on March 27.  <3

SCID affects about one in 100,000 babies in the U.S., according to Be the Match. There are more options available for children with SCID now than when the disease entered popular culture in the 1970s with the famous “bubble boy,” David Vetter. — NY Daily News (link)
