Kevin McNamara Kevin’s New Birthday

First post: Apr 15, 2022 Latest post: Jun 19, 2022
Hi Everyone,

A decade ago I received a treatment which gave me nearly a decade of good health following a bout with severe aplastic anemia.  I got to see my sons grow into fine young men, find a loving partner in Stephanie, and spend invaluable time enjoying all of your company.

But I always knew the treatment was not a ‘cure’, and there was a chance I may be where I am now - in need of a transplant. My generous donors will be my son William, and an unknown mother somewhere in the UK who provided her umbilical cord after birth of her child.  This time I am shooting for a cure.

Many of you have graciously offered to help me during this journey - with things like visits, meals, and caregiving in the 2-3 months after I get out of the hospital.  For this I am immensely grateful.

I will keep you posted here.  I’ll have a calendar to manage offers to help.  And please feel free to reach out to me here, or via phone or email.  I will be happy to hear from you.
