Sarah Campbell and Sebastian Teichmann met at Stansted Airport
A teenager who had a bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with leukaemia has met her donor in person.
Sarah Campbell, 15, from Bexhill, East Sussex, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia when she was seven.
It went into remission after chemotherapy but returned in a different form when she was 12 and she had a bone marrow transplant.
Sebastian Teichmann from Osnabruck, Germany, flew in for a party to mark three years since the transplant.
Sarah, a pupil at Claverham Community College in Battle, said: "When they told me I had acute lymphoblastic leukaemia I was absolutely gutted.
"It's worse the second time for some reason. We were all devastated.
"The doctors told us immediately that I'd need a bone marrow transplant. I was really very lucky. The Anthony Nolan Trust found a donor within a month.
"I was so relieved. You're just waiting and not knowing. Any bits of information keep you going, so being told there was a donor was fantastic."
Student Mr Teichmann, 23, said: "I joined the bone marrow register when I was about 19. My friends and I all joined. It just seemed the right thing to do.
"I was very surprised when I was contacted just six months later asking if I was still prepared to donate. You never really think it's going to happen.
"I feel quite special. What a privilege to be asked to save someone's life."
