Hi...I just wanted to post this....

thanks for your information a few weeks ago about steroid-free therapy..not only did I end up changing units last minute, as the latter one was not working supportively for me...but due to your comments and suggestions a few weeks ago...I found through my own research a place here in NYC that does steroid-free therapy and has done well with it (they have a 100% graft survival rate)....

if it weren't for you...I'd have missed out on an amazing opportunity on my own doorstep...and for that...I owe you a big, huge, thanks!!!

You are very welcome. No matter what therapy transplantees are on, I think it's vital to have a unit with doctors who provide excellent aftercare. I am so glad you have found a center you feel happy and confident about. Hope everything goes smoothly for you as you progress towards transplant.

Best Wishes
