It seems that as brave and valiant as my prince continues to be, there is a need to call on some of our friends for additional support in this battle against evil.
So, a head's up to all future heroes.....
It has been confirmed that Brandon NEEDS a stem cell transplant in order to remain in remission long term. Otherwise, the cancer will return within a year.
The hospital has started a search for a donor, but unfortunately the database is still quite small and there is only a 60% chance that Brandon will find a match.
The biggest misconception seems to be the process a donor must go through if they are a match. To donate stem cells there is actually no extraction of bone...it is like donating blood!
I found these 2 Youtube videos that explain the process:
We are working with several agencies to organize targeted initiatives.
PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR UPCOMING DETAILS ABOUT DONATING!!!
Thank you to all our soldiers (and heroes) out there!
