Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I know some of the most wonderful moms in the world, including many of you. But there are two very special moms out there I have never met – but who gave me the most extraordinary Mother’s Day present ever: the gift of life for The Teen. When their babies were born, they donated their cord blood, which was in turn given to The Teen via a stem cell transplant, curing her of a previously incurable disease, and saving her life.

Now my next greatest Mother’s Day wish is to thank them, so I’ll be getting in touch with our pediatric bone marrow transplant team coordinator to find out if we can at least write them, even if we never know their identities. Their children are now a part of my child. If you donated your child’s cord blood at birth, please know that you may have donated a miracle – maybe even our family’s miracle.
