Quick Update on Christine

Many of you all out there know that I was doing what little I could to help Christine Pechera.

She has touched us all with her humor, talent, generosity, eloquence, strength and her sweet spirit...

A lot of you have asked, "How's she doing?" Some answers can be found on her site:

From what I know, she is in the hospital recovering. It sounds like she is doing well even though she underwent the bone marrow transplant with a partial match donor. This was not optimal, but time to search for a perfect match ran out.

Christine seems to be in good spirits and complaining less about this intensely difficult experience less than I am complaining about the heat. She puts me to shame!

I think to say that she is being a trooper is an understatement!

If you are the praying kind, please put a good word in for Christine's bone marrow transplant to graft without any complications, and for her to have a speedy, full recovery!

If you happen to be a person of color, please consider signing up to be on the bone marrow donor registry!

This is because if a person of color needs a bone marrow transplant, there is a good chance that there will not be a match on the registry. If you are white, 10 -20 matches might come up for a person. My boss/friend, Audra Synder told me that a friend 0f hers had a bone marrow transplant and is now doing great! If you can, please consider being a bone marrow donor. It is no longer a big, painful procedure and you could save someone's life!
