Photos of Tami's Actual Stem Cell Transplant

View the previous post below to see all of the details about Tam's Transplant.

This little bag of stem cells can mean the difference between life and death for those in need.

Thank you so much to Tami's anonymous donor whoever and wherever you are. I've been sitting here staring at this photo and thinking how lucky Tami is that you joined the registry, how lucky our whole family is.

I mean really, how do you properly thank someone for giving someone you love a chance to have their future back? There simply aren't words to convey how I feel tonight knowing that Tami, her kids and the rest of us who love her have received such an amazing gift from you.

And now the waiting begins. Will Tami's body accept or reject these donor cells? It will take several weeks to find out. Please keep Tami in your thoughts and prayers and continue to send positive energy in a north-westerly direction aimed at Seattle.
