Complex case study: four stem cell transplants

The latest issue of the e-newsletter produced by the Dana-Farber Brigham and Women's Cancer Center's Adult Stem Cell Transplantation program features a complex case study: my own.

I never sought this distinction, but since it was given to me, I am glad it can play a role in spreading the word to other hospitals and doctors about this amazing team that provided not only top-notch clinical expertise but also compassionate care.

By clicking on  Advances in Hematologic Malignancies, you can see the whole issue.

Then drop down to Complex Case Study: Four Stem Cell Transplants for Acute Myeloid Leukemia, followed by The Patient's Perspective.

As a bonus, people who hear me constantly sing the praises of Edwin Alyea, MD, and Melissa Cochran, MS, NP, of the Adult Stem Cell Transplantation Program can get to see their smiling faces at the end.

Wow! What a story. And the most amazing part is the last two sentences.

you are amazing...
