I sent a copy of Jack's homework to both Dr. Wagner and to Beverly, your donor. Sometimes I think we all need to reminding that we really did get 2 more years with you. You were a miracle. Thank god Jack is wise enough to understand this. He gets it.
I also ended up sending it to our friends at The Marrow Foundation to let them know how much we appreciate what they do. Their good work shouldn't be measured in lives saved, but in the extra minutes, months and years they give patients, like you, and their families, like us. I think The Marrow Foundation sent it to a man who gave his new blood to someone like you who needed a transplant. He is very sad because the person he helped died.
