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

Waiting - Rebecca Salame

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff.

― Carl Sagan

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. She will be taking her chances with a risky 9/10 match in a couple of weeks unless a miracle happens. 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.

If she were to find a match, it would most likely be from someone of Sephardi Jewish or Middle Eastern heritage and that 10/10 person is out there…

About Jet Black

I began blogging because having been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, I wanted to share my experiences of living with an incurable cancer. Through blogging, I discovered that I enjoy writing. I have always chosen to live life for the journey, more than the destination. This is as true for the act of writing as it is for living with myeloma, so these are two things I do: I live and I write!
