#WW: The Gift of Life


A sixty-five year old stranger awaits stem cells to save her from cancer. Luckily, she's a match to my husband who will be undergoing a procedure next week to remove cells from his bone marrow. Leading up to the donation, he has undergone an extensive physical and will receive daily shots. Due to his courageous gift, she should recover.

Incredible. I'll always be indebted to my uncle for his marrow donation that gave my dad a fighting chance against leukemia.

If just one person will become a donor after reading this, imagine what more could be done!
