Watch Ulrika's appeal. Can you help, before it is too late?

Time is running out for brave Ulrika Dandekar who is desperately in need of a stem cell transplant after being diagnosed with a rare type of blood cancer.

For Ulrika, aged 21, from Solihull, has been readmitted to hospital after discovering more than 15 cancerous lumps on her body.

She has undergone another round of chemotherapy in the hope of combating the cancer, called Anaplastic Lymphoma, at Heartlands Hospital, and will have to wait at least two weeks before she will find out if its worked.

But during a holiday to Turkey in August, Ulrika, known as Riya, noticed that a small lump on the side of her body, which was thought to be an insect bite, had grown.

She explained: I had been given the okay to go on holiday to Turkey with my mum, but just before going away, I noticed a small lump which looked just like an insect bite.

The doctors thought it was nothing to worry about but I was given antibiotics. However, when we got abroad it just kept changing and growing every day.

My mum kept taking pictures of it and emailing them back to our doctor to keep him up-to-date with what was happening, although coming back early would not have made a difference.
