I was so deeply saddend to learn of her relapse in November 2008. She is in the fight of her life.
Read when she was diagnosed here:
I'm going to give platelets today. It's a 2 hour process (plus drive time), but it's relatively painless. You are just hooked up to a machine that takes your red blood cells and platelets. The last time I gave platelets they told me the platelets were going directly to Methodist Hospital to save an infant's life. I've done it a lot these past few years since I've known Deb.
I started giving platelets in September 2005 after the catastrophic hurricane Katrina (http://www.katrina.noaa.gov/) hit the gulf coast. Many, many people were in need of blood transfusions and platelets.
And if you feel like giving blood or platelets, please call Tracy and the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center at 210-249-4436. You could save a life.
