I wanted to take just a minute to tell you about some exciting news that is happening within my family. My oldest son joined The Match Registry when he was going through boot camp. Last year he was contacted because he was an initial match to be a donor. Well, several months and multiple tests later he found out that he's almost a PERFECT match! He flew in yesterday from Okinawa and is in the D.C. area with his wife. I will be flying down later this week to be with him during his procedure and once he's done we will be coming home together on Saturday evening. He's so excited to be able to do this for someone. He's in great shape, takes good care of himself, and I know his recovery may be a bit painful but he's prepared for it. I will be there to hold his hand because his wife has finals this week for her college classes. I'm so thankful that I can do this for both of them....how did they turn into adults already??? His gift of life has inspired me to join the Match Registry!
Please keep my son and the person he's donating to in your thoughts and prayers this week. I pray for 100% success for the transplant and that this will give the Leukemia patient a new lease on life!
Thanks so much for your support and love!
