Today I received the first update from my bone marrow recipient. Unfortunately, it was sad news as her transplant center had informed Gift of Life that she has passed away.

I don’t know any further details and would assume this to be the end of the line so I won’t find out any more.

Since this information was just received, it’s likely she passed recently and therefore the transplant bought her nearly a year and a half. That’s only an assumption, but I’m going to go with it.

I’ll continue to run swab drives – I’ve now run three and collected ~50 folks for the registry. You can join my “Circle” here.
