Kim Barkov Kim Barkov's BMT Journey

First post: Sep 27, 2018 Latest post: 1 hour ago
In 2013  was diagnosed with a bone marrow disorder, a benign form of Leukemia called "Polycythemia (PV)". I remained relatively stable for 4 years.  In 2018 I learned my PV transformed to an aggressive form of MF (Myelofibrosis) and I was given a  prognosis that includes a shortened life expectancy (1.5 - < 5 years)  unless I undergo a bone marrow transplant ASAP.  

Things should go well, but I just wanted to say that I will never forget the many fond memories growing up in Abington and Philly, living in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Jupiter, and working on bank projects throughout North and South Carolina. 

I appreciate your words of hope and encouragement to get me through the 100 days following transplant, which is anticipated to start soon, December 4th 2018. 

Thank you for visiting. Kim
