Congratulations on you transplant! I also am a transplant receiptant. I did my
transplant at LDS Hospital w/Dr Finn Bo Petersen and his team! They are
terrific! I will be celebrating my 9th year out in September! It is an amazing
thing and I wish it was more publicized to create more donors for the registry.
Good luck with your new life!
I'm disappointed that there are no web links to DKMS or any other marrow
registries. That would've been a helpful part of the story, to get other people
to sign up for it. Donating bone marrow is not that difficult and is such a
needed thing, just like donating organs and tissue after you die (or living
kidney/liver donations). Should've had more statics on how many donate, how to
sign up, how to help others. Good story but lacking some vital follow up.
I'm so glad for your successful SCT. You have so many good years ahead of you.
I just received my transplant 5 days ago and have great faith in success, also.
I also had a problem with my first donor, but it was my blood causing the
problem. The second one was right there ready and willing immediately. Can't
wait to meet my donor and give her a hug!!
