Sea-salted star-stuff… gifts and miracles

I am in New York this week and hoping to actually meet Rebecca. She didn’t have the transplant in July. She went on a drug trial instead. That showed no effect, so she is now heading for a transplant in December.

Still with the risky 9/10 donor…

Still hoping for a 10/10 match…

Please register to be a donor, whoever and wherever you are, and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

Thank you! x

I’d like to share something written by my friend Rebecca (with an acknowledged nod to Carl Sagan), who is still in need of a 10/10 donor for a stem cell transplant to treat late stage lymphoma.

Those of you who know me, know I do not ever talk about miracles, but this woman has a way about her that inspires me to think and speak in these terms. And it is the only appropriate word for this occasion.
