If a person is lucky enough to be called by Be The Match, they can have the choice to not save a persons life if they are told the stem cells must be harvested via the bone. But remember, they may be the only chance for life for the patient. If a person is called for further testing, they may be this persons last chance to live.

My donor never questioned saving my life, JulieMeryl states. He is my hero! Please be a hero to the 70% of patients who never find a match.

Julie Meryl was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia at the age of 36. She was told to watch and wait, which actually means watch and worry until treatment is needed. All of Julie Meryls chemo cocktails failed. She needed a stem cell transplant to save her life. In November 2009, Julie Meryl went to Hackensack University Medical Center, located in New Jersey, for her transplant. A perfect match was found for her very quickly. Her donor is from Israel and even their blood type matches. Julie Meryl is still under care but is thrilled to be alive and excited to celebrate her big day on November 17, 2012.

Julie Meryl got through her journey with her sense of humor which can be found on some of her websites: leukemiasucks.com, badbloodclub.com, chemofarts.com.
