I am greatly saddened to tell you that my best friend and wife of 37 plus years Debbie Seid succumbed to the effects of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) today, a disease she fought vigorously with exceptional bravery and dignity. Our family would like to thank all the Doctors and Nurses at Dana Farber/Brigham & Women’s Cancer Center in Boston for all their dedicated efforts in providing Deb with the best treatment and support. Our thanks and gratitude goes out to all of you who provided our family support over the past months with the hundreds of cards, emails, and postings on Caring Bridge and Facebook. Please know that all your love and support kept us all going during this battle and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Over the next few days we will bring Deb home to Pawleys and will plan a service to celebrate her wonderful life.
In lieu of flowers, the family request donations are made to the charity below:
Underprivileged Patient Fund in the name of Debra Seid
Brigham and Women's Hospital Development Office
116 Huntington Avenue, 5th Floor

Move on Hold
Written Apr 22, 2013 10:22pmDocs have decided to put the move to Rehab on hold since Deb's condition has not improved to where she can be off all meds. Today she had radiation treatment #4 with 8 remaining. Tonight she's dealing with a temp of 101.6 and is over sedated with a new time release morphine pill. They are now reevaluating this med to lower doseage or replace it with yet another one. The Dana Farber Docs should be scheduling Deb's 6th bone marrow biopsy the end of this week to hopefully determine if the AML is in remission in the bone.
Boston is slowing getting back to normal with a plan to reopen Boylston Street in the near future. Flowers are out all around town, but the temps are still way to cold for me. Deb continues to get many well wishes which always put a smile on her face. Please continue to support and pray that all goes well for her so we may move on to rehab. Thanks to all!
