Taking Time to Smell the Flowers
Like many other patients, I learned about your organization as I began preparing for my stem cell transplant in 2002. Diagnosed with AML at age 29, there weren't many people in my peer network for me to turn to. There were only limited resources to help me understand what a stem cell transplant would mean to me. I remember ordering and watching the nbmtLINK video, "The New Normal," and it really helped me to prepare for what was to come. 
My stem cell transplant was performed at the University of Minnesota on July 26, 2002.
