NORTHAMPTONSHIRE, England — A young English boy suffering from a debilitating disorder is asking people to wear yellow as he prepares to undergo another operation.
According to Mashable, 5-year-old Seth Lane, from Northamptonshire, England, suffers from Severe Combined Immonudeficiency, a primary immune deficiency often called “bubble boy disease” because it forces patients to live in sterile environments.
According to a blog set up to support the young boy, Lane has already undergone one bone marrow transplant — and now he faces another.
Lane recorded a video message in which he held up yellow cards asking for support.
“Hello, I’m Seth. I’m five years old, and I love Fireman Sam, Paw Patrol and yellow,” the cards read.
The boy continued:
“I’m in hospital. I was born with no immune system. I need a second bone marrow transplant. On 27th March lots of people are going to wear yellow to show me how much support I have. Do you want to join in?”
The message also said anyone interested can post photos of themselves wearing yellow in support to social media with the hashtag, #wearyellowforseth.
