Brandy Burkett Brandy’s Journey

If you are reading this right now then you were sweet and curious enough to find out what is going on with me. Well, I have Myloedysplastic Syndrome which is a type of blood cancer. I am also high spectrum Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I am about to embark on my new journey to receive a bone marrow transplant. I will be admitted to UAB on September 25th for 5 days of intense chemo followed by my bone marrow transplant on October 1st. I will more than likely be in the hospital for about 3 months after my transplant to give my immune system time to heal and grow stronger. Some days will be good and some will be bad. I will lose my hair and deal with the lasting effects of the chemo but I am a fighter and will pull through this. This site is a way that I can communicate and update everyone on my progress. I encourage comments and well wishes. Those small gifts of love are exactly what I need to get me through this.
