MAY 18, 2006 – In an effort to treat the pre-leukemic disease MDS,
Michael was the recipient of an experimental blood stem cell
transplant which did not work as hoped. While there is no longer any
leukemia actively present, the prospect of the disease returning is
both present and daunting. Michael is currently at home recuperating
from various treatments and getting stronger. He is now able to play
for brief intervals and is spending time with family and friends.
Our commitment to enlarging the pool of potential donors remains
strong; thank you for your support.
