In a highly unusual move, a leukemia survivor is set to travel halfway round the world to meet the person whose stem cells saved his life.

Amrith Singh was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (cancer of the white blood cells) and told his only chance of survival was finding a donor.

After two years passed with seemingly no hope, Singh was put onto the National bone marrow registry.

Singh's journey will come full circle later this month when he comes face to face with the person who saved his life.
