Saw this touching story (http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=6287495) on ESPN today.  A young woman with AML recently succumbed to this wretched disease.  While this is not an AML board, I think it's worth noting the media attention to get more bone marrow donors seems to be increasing.  I even heard something about it on the Howard Stern Show.

I've followed your posts for over 2 years and I understand how much you miss your mom. I lost my mom to lung cancer 22 years ago and I miss her everyday.

I'm not sad any longer, though, I'm able to focus on the good things. It gets easier, but it never goes away.

Thinking of you,


P. S. What a great photo! Is that you and your mom?
