To our dear friends and family - we are updating today, because we unfortunately received some concerning news. During the almost decade long search for Krissy's match, we always had it in the back of our minds that this would come, but Krissy's most recent blood work and bone marrow biopsy showed her RBC, WBC, Platelets and Neutrophils are at levels so low she will need to act very soon. She is now in the process of actively preparing for a bone marrow transplant, hopefully by sometime in the fall. We are not 100% sure of the match possibilities yet, and there are some options to take in consideration, but the good news is there were no signs of extra blasts, which means it hasn't progressed into Leukemia.
Please keep Krissy and her family in your thoughts and prayers as she goes through the process of preparing for her bone marrow transplant. Krissy is staying positive and in good spirits, but can use as much encouragement and prayer from her team as she can! Please feel free to email us or comment, and as always, we ask you to please continue to spread the word and get more people registered to be marrow donors! Now more than ever, we have an urgent need to find Krissy's match. If you aren't registered, you can register here! Share the link! You can also contact us if you want more information! I'm happy to answer whatever questions you have!
Krissy is a fighter! She is ready to get through this and she is so thankful for all of the love and support from all of her team. Thank you!
Together we can make it hapa'n!
