    A Better Way to Harvest Bone Marrow

    August 26, 2009 by  
    Filed under What's Happening

    Hey

    Hey everybody…

    I’m not a teen, but I coordinate activities here in Rochester NY for teen cancer survivors…and I’m a two time cancer survivor myself.

    It’s not easy to deal with all the regular stuff in life…then add cancer and it’s like somebody just dumped a watermelon on your already overloaded paper plate. How’s that analogy? 

    Anyway, I want everybody here to know that you are not alone…and that simply by connecting with others here you can find ways to deal with all this cancer stuff. Keep hanging in there…you have a lot to share.
