So, ladies. I'm asking for any kind of prayer, well wishes, thoughts...whatever you have...please throw it at me.
The kind of leukemia is called JMML. It's a rare form of leukemia that apparently makes up for less than 1% of ALL leukemia. His oncologist has seen only 4 cases of it his entire 24 year career. We're speaking to top specialists in San Francisco and at St. Jude's and collaborating.
I'm trying to stay strong. I am no longer working, nor am I going to school, I am a 24/7 hospital resident so sometimes that little switch in the back of my head goes off and I just completely fall apart. They had given him a 30% chance of survival two days ago but the guy is a fighter and his chances of survival have gone up. so Please Please PLEASE pray for him, or well wishes, or whatever you can.
And I will try to keep updated.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
And for the rest of us, there is something, something real, that we can do: http://www.marrow.org/ is the website for the national bone marrow registry. You can register online, they'll mail you a cheek swab kit, you do your swabs and mail it back in, and there you are, possibly able to save someone's life. Please join.
