We called 'heads' on that flip of a coin. It seems to have come up 'tails'. My uncle donated his stem cells but the count only hit somewhere in the neighborhood of 200,000. That number needed to be closer to 1 to 2 million so we're way off. They're going to try some last ditch efforts to see if there isn't some way to get the cells produced but I'm not holding my breath. It seems we're headed to the national registry so I will again make this plea.
If you feel motivated to impact someone's life (possibly my dad's but more likely someone else's) in a very big way with very little impact on you, I would urge you to register at bethematch.org. You fill out the request online and they mail you some q-tip types of swabs. You swab the inside of your cheek and mail it back. That's all it takes for the initial steps. They then contact you if you match anyone down the road.
And I'm sure my dad wouldn't mind hearing directly from any of y'all to encourage him in his battle. Fighting day after day after day in the face of continual losses gets more than a bit disheartening. Cancer sucks, after all.
