  5. I had to stop myself from crying like a baby before I could respond to this message. Bran I am so happy for you. For your future, for your family, for your children. Mazel Tov! I am so happy this has come true for you. I love you all. Please know that we are here to help with anything while you go through the transplant and the recovery.

The prayers are still here for you, as we realize that the next step is not easy...but you are a fighter and we know you will kill the wicked witch and live 'happily ever after' with Taly and the kids.

  8. Last night my mom told me the INCREDIBLE news!!! Wooooohooooooo!!! It is SO great to hear! :)

    It just so happens that today, I had a small group session about leukemia and all the types of transplant options. In the session, I mentioned your story and how you found a donor - everyone was THRILLED! Even the hematologist said that it is great news and wishes you the best of luck! You have 15 future doctors and plenty of friends rooting for you over here! :)

    GOOD LUCK Brandon and Taly!
