Bone Marrow Donation - One Year Later

I had a message today from someone at the National Marrow Donor Program informing me that the young boy with leukemia, who I donated bone marrow to last January, is doing really well! The lady also said that since it's been a year, I'll probably be able to meet him. This is incredibly exciting! When I was asked to donate blood cells to the boy over the summer, I feared that the marrow donation hadn't gone well, and this was a last ditch effort. Either that, or he needed an extra boost to beat the cancer. Well, whatever it was, it sounds like it worked! I can't call them back because of the holiday, but you can bet I'll be getting in touch with them first thing Monday morning! Stay tuned.
