On October 1st, 2009 I was diagnosed with Leukemia. After 9 months of intense chemotherapy treatments, the decision was made that I would need a bone marrow transplant. A suitable donor was not found within my family so I would have to rely on the national Be The Match® marrow registry to locate one for me.

A match was found and on August 18th, 2010 I underwent a stem-cell transplant using an unrelated donors stem-cells. Today, I'm cancer free! Her generosity and selflessness has allowed me to call myself a 'survivor'. This video was captured of my donor and I meeting face-to-face for the first time. It was truly an amazing experience!

I have made it my life's mission to 'Pay it Forward'. After transplant, I started working for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society where I am able to use my wounds for good on a daily basis. My diagnoses was not in vain! To learn how you can help create a world without cancer, visit http://www.LLS.org/il and to join the Be The Match® registry, visit http://join.marrow.org/LLS
