Why this is a really big deal

To keep this brief, being here and sister having this transplant is a huge breakthrough for her and for our family. Three long years coming. During this time there’s been close calls to having a stem cell transplant in Chicago, Tel Aviv, and Sydney, and a great test of faith when each has fallen through. Medical trials. Timing. Costs. Funding. But in the wake of closed doors and disappointment: Singapore. Within two months of it even being mentioned, we’ve been for one trip, she’s been accepted, and now we’re here.
