Thank you so much for posting this!


My daughter was diagnosed with AML at age 8. She was only given a 50% chance of survival even WITH a bone marrow transplant (which they initially refused to do because they couldn't get her into remission). With a LOT of pressure and our INSISTANCE that they do it anyway, she received anonymous donor marrow on June 20th, 1996. Again, we were told she wouldn't survive. NEXT WEEK IT WILL BE 13 YEARS SINCE HER TRANSPLANT nad she REMAINS CANCER FREE. Never, I repeat, NEVER take "no" or "it's impossible" or "it won't work" for an answer! If I had not INSISTED they keep trying, she would be dead today instead of living a normal life as a beautiful, determined 22 year old. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Here is a quick link to her story. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzcfdcRbSBE

Blessings to you,

Vicky, Thank you for your comment and for sharing Brittany's inspirational story. And for sharing your determination to not take "no" for an answer and how you fought for what you wanted and knew had to be done even when the odds we're not in your favor.

It's a reminder to us all to never give up no matter how difficult, unclear and rough the road ahead is. Thanks for sharing because your story will help many.
