Karmanos Cancer Center

I met with Dr Ayash this morning. It has been almost 5 years since I had my stem cells harvested there (all 14 million of them) . Dr Goldman wants me to finish my transplant which I stopped due to acute kidney failure. My kidneys are now back to normal and I am now a candidate. I was told that they still have my stem cells. Karmanos has started only keeping them for 3 years. I feel like I won the lottery (not really) I told Bob that if my cells were still available I would see it as a sign to go through with the transplant. I feel so good right now. This is the ideal time to do it, while I am healthy enough to survive it. That being said, I am waiting until after the first of the year before starting with any preliminary testing.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
