How Tami is Feeling

Well things are finally about to start moving forward for Tami. This week she will be relocating to begin her pre-transplant health screening. While this will be tough on her kids to not have her home, the great thing is that web cams now exist and will allow them to see and talk to their mom each day via the internet. We're also extremely thankful that Tami has a huge support base and between her family and friends there will be no shortage of help for her family while she is at the hospital. We really appreciate how this is something to be grateful for as not everyone is so fortunate.

Tami's counts have continued to rise the past week and her white blood cell count is almost back to normal. Her red blood cell count and platelet counts are still low though. Unfortunately even with her counts improving her overall energy level is still low so she hasn't had a lot of strength and continues to tire easily.

Big news on one of the PSA videos we're creating. Filming has begun on our "Smile, Swab and Spread the Word" video and I spent a day last week with Savadelis Films shooting several cameos including one with Congressman Mike Honda. We also filmed numerous cameos around Downtown Campbell. A special thanks to Chuck and Jewel Savadelis for volunteering their time, talent and efforts to this project for us.
