Officially Three Years Since My Last Bone Marrow Transplant—TODAY!










Crazy, huh? Seems like another lifetime ago in many ways and yet the intensity of my gratitude today is unchanged, if not stronger, than it was then for our miracle and all those that helped make it happen. Although we each must be the ones who walk the paths of our lives—challenges & tragedies included—none of us get there alone. Today I’d like to pause and recognize several of the key people, including my “dream team” at Northside Hospital and The Blood & Marrow Transplant Group of Georgia, and “The Mom’s” (as they became known for swapping turns for the 6-8 hrs daily shifts accompany me to the clinic), who helped me along mine.

My wonderful friend and former boss, Dr. Marisa Lawrence


My Gyn Oncologist, Dr. Gerald Feuer



My bone marrow transplant physician, Dr. Asad Bashey

My "Other Mother"/Mother-in-law, Anne Phillips

My Mom, Jeanne Allen
