Good news for an Edmonton mother diagnosed with leukemia, her family told CTV News the search for a stem cell match had ended, and a transplant had been set for December..

The family of Tammy McLash, 38, contacted CTV News Monday to say a match had been found for her as she battles acute myeloid leukemia.

The mother of twin toddlers was diagnosed in early August, 2014 – and a short time later, she started her first round of chemotherapy.

When that didn’t work, she started a second round – and the search for a stem cell match began.

Acute myeloid leukemia is an aggressive form of blood cancer, and a stem cell transplant is her best chance of survival.

While a donor has been found for McLash, the family is encouraging everyone to register to become a donor – more information can be found on the Canadian Blood Services website.
