March 19 – Deb’s new birthday

March 19 is Day 0, which is often referred to as a new birthday for bone marrow transplant patients.  All that we know about Deb’s donor is that he is 32, a male, and international.  Well, I guess we do know a little more about him … we know that he is a generous, unselfish individual, to give the gift of life to someone he doesn’t even know.

The infusion is expected to start around noon and take 1 to 2 hours.  The stem cells are given through Deb’s IV catheter and infused into her bloodstream, where they will eventually make their way into her bone marrow.

Deb has a very positive attitude, is eager and optimistic, and believes she will be cured by this miraculous gift from a stranger.  Please keep Deb in your thoughts, prayers and hearts on Wednesday as she receives her new stem cells.
