November 18, 2009 marks my daughter, Suzanne's, fifth year in remission from Hodgkins Lymphoma. Suzanne had a stem cell transplant in 2002, and then a bone marrow transplant from a donor registry donor in November of 2004. The transplant from the anonymous male donor changed Suzanne's blood type from A+ to B+.
The fifth year is a significant milestone. But last year, Suzanne experienced a miracle of her own. Against all odds, she became pregnant and in February of 2008, daughter, Katelyn Jean was born.
