Manda's Sick - This just in!

8 preliminary matches! Now they have to be contacted, confirmed as willing to donate, and brought in for further testing.

Amanda apparently also has a rare antigen that will probably preclude a 100% match, but we're told that a 95% match is likely and good enough.

That is wonderful news. Lets all hope they are ready and willing to go forward. My ex-wife was only a 3 of 6 antigen match (50%) for my transplant so Manda should be ok. I do not know if it is the same for bone marrow transplantation.

A friend of mine is on the registry and wanted to know if there is someone she can contact to see if she is one of the matches. You can e-mail me via Mariah. Know that Amanda, you and Little A, and are on prayer chains all across the area. So nice to see the photos from the Mom-cam. You son is a cutie!
