    Defeating Leukemia

    in Health

    Joyce and Mike speak with David Tuccaro Jr., the subject of the new book Bad To The Bone (by Marala Scott). David is a very inspirational young man who has defeated Leukemia.

    David's life was saved by a bone marrow donor from the other side of the world.  He is passionately committed to tell the world about the advances in bone marrow transplant technology that make it possible for a donor to test with a simple cheek swab, and to donate through a blood process that is nearly painless and is very simple compared to the older methods.  It is no longer necessary to drill into bone to extract bone marrow.

    Fighting Leukemia with Dorothy Vernon Brown

    in Health

    It’s the worst news you ever want to hear. ‘I think you have leukemia’, the young doctor told her. That was August 2013 when Dorothy Vernon Brown was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). As a devoted mother, wife, entrepreneur and serial volunteer it was a kick to the gut. Her treatments have gone well but Dorothy, like many minorities on the donor list, is in DESPERATE need of a stem cell transplant to continue to live and prevent a relapse.

    Less than 25% of patients who need a stem cell transplant will find a match in their family; regrettably Dorothy is one of these. Her best chance of finding a match is to find a donor from her own ethnic group. She is of Jamaican heritage with a mixed background of Black and Irish.  Dorothy urgently need the help from the Jamaican/West Indian community and young men (women not excluded) between the ages of 17 and 35 to become a donor with OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network (www.OneMatch.ca). This will increase her chances of finding a match.

    You may contact Dorothy Vernon Brown at www.DonorDrive4Dorothy.org or via Dr. Diane Thompson at www.DrDianeThompson.com
