Brian was diagnosed with pre B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia on December 18,2015. He was admitted to UAB hospital on December 19, 2015. He was placed in HOSU where he received induction therapy and achieved remission in 12 days. After a 2 week break, he began the hyper CVAD regimen. He completed 4 treatments. During this time they were searching the bone marrow registry for a match. We were notified that they had found a good match right before admission for the 4th treatment. The donor turned out to be a 100% match. (12 out of 12). He completed a number of tests to make sure that he was healthy enough to proceed with the transplant. He was admitted to the BMT unit April 20, 2016. And so our journey begins.
