Because so many generous people have offered, I wanted to clarify how this whole process works. I’m not sure if this is just this hospital’s procedure or if it’s national. But this hospital doesn’t test people who want to doante specifically for Andrew. They use a donor registry now. The process in which the blood is tested and prepared is quite extensive. So even if they did do it there wouldn’t be enough anytime for Andrew to use it.
BUT that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t donate!!! Please still donate and see if you can donate in Andrew’s name. It would be very cool to have a lot of donations in Andrew’s name! It will definitely show how loved he is!Â Even tho Andrew can’t use your blood, stems or marrowÂ there is a deserving child who can!! I promise you that!
FYI Andrew has 2 pages of perfect match donors! SO that is grrrrreat! They also use umblical cord stem cells. So keep praying he’s in remission so they startÂ the transplantÂ and that the stem cells take. If it doesn’t, then we have to do bone marrow transplant too. :-( But we know this first time around WILL take!
THANK YOU FOR ANDREW’S MIRACLE HEALING AND HEALTHY BONE MARROW! SO IT IS!
