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.

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.

What does it mean to "empower" a patient?
Jack Aiello of San Jose, California is a leading patient-advocate in multiple myeloma. In January of 1995 Jack had a terrible backache. He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma through a blood test. Since that time Jack has had stem cell transplants that have brought him to remission, even if only for a short time. Mr. Aiello's spirit remains high and to quote him "I certainly don't want anyone to feel bad for me. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be alive…have seen 2 daughters graduate with Master's and Bachelor's degrees, and my youngest son graduate from UCLA in 2006 in music education. One daughter does breast cancer research, another trains dolphins and my son teaches high school music. We've taken some wonderful family & friends vacations, and I'm getting more involved with some cancer organizations. I'm able to do volunteer work for the International Myeloma Foundation, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, all of whom provide research dollars and education programs for Multiple Myeloma."
Your host, Viyahta, welcomes David Tuccarro to share his journey in overcoming Leukemia. David grew up as part of the Mikisew Cree Nation, a Native American tribe, from Northern Canada. He is the subject of the book, "BAD TO THE BONE", which describes his complicated family relationships, insecure childhood, dependence on pain medications and a love relationship with music that helped him survive the grueling medical treatments for his diagnosis. His tatoos are a picturesque representation of his current philosopy, "Power thru it".
