Join TV Journalist Victoria Gaither and Entertainment Co-host Micheal Kay as they talk with AHWV Fashion Contributor, Tamara Hush Lee of Hush Boutique about her husband's fight with Leukemia.

Tamara wants to focus on explaining why bone marrow is so important to patients and how she and her husband's life changed after his diagnosis a few years ago.

According to webmd.com  "Leukemia is cancer of the blood cells. It starts in the bone marrow, the soft tissue inside most bones. Bone marrow is where blood cells are made.  When you have leukemia, the bone marrow starts to make a lot of abnormal whiteblood cells, called leukemia cells. They don't do the work of normal white blood cells, they grow faster than normal cells, and they don't stop growing when they should.
