Please pray for my daughter!
On March 17th my daughter was diagnosed with 2 kinds of Leukemia. She has CML (chronic) in her blood and ALL (Acute) in her bone marrow. At first they thought it was AML in her bone marrown and then soon discovered that it is ALL. She is 34 years old. She had her first round of chemo last week. She will do chemo again tomorrow. On Wednesday she will have another bone marrow biopsy and hopefully it will be in remission. Please pray that it is in remission and then she can start the next phase which is a bone marrow transplant and then hopefully we will be done with it.

Hang in there and I'll be keeping you both in my thoughts & prayers.

ETA- I would encourage everyone to go to www.marrow.org & see about registering as a marrow donor. I was selected for the 2nd round of screening for a 27 yr old man with ALL- but I didn't end up matching him closely enough. If they call me again- I will be a perfect match.
