For nearly ten years I battled chronic myeloid leukemia until the daily chemotherapy became so toxic that I had to undergo a procedure that was a coin toss of success: a bone marrow transplant. For two years I documented, almost daily, my struggle through one of the toughest procedures man has ever conceived. My hope is that in the telling, someone else going through the same procedure can benefit. There was very little from a patient's perspective for me and even less that was valuable to call upon. Please take advantage of my story in any way you can.
