The Pre-transplant Testing has Begun!

Tami has begun her pre-transplant testing! The testing will take approximately 2 weeks. Then the potential donor will go through an extensive health screening to make sure he is healthy enough to be eligible to donate his stem cells. There is a 50% chance that the donor may be deemed ineligible to donate or may change his mind. On the truly incredible and miraculous front... A second 10 out of 10 marker match donor has been located for Tami. Her odds of recovery are getting better and better.

Once a donor has been deemed eligible to donate to her, there are still some tough obstacles Tami will have to overcome. She must endure several rounds of chemo before being able to receive a transplant. This is of course a debilitating process followed by a long recovery of several months.
