National Marrow Donor Awareness Campaign

These are my nieces, three of the bravest girls you'll ever meet. Their story is extraordinary. If you have a minute, check it out.

We're happy that Madison's transplant was successful. And were happy that a donor was found for Olivia, too. We're sad she'll have to miss Disneyland next month. We'll plan something next year.

This is a truly amazing story and so glad you shared it online.

I used to transcribe dictation for a bone marrow transplant unit in a hospital, on the patient floor quite a while ago. I'll never forget it. I can tell you we took great care in our work, that's for sure!
