Myelofibrosis is a serious bone marrow disorder that disrupts your body's normal production of blood cells. The result is extensive scarring in your bone marrow, leading to severe anemia, weakness, fatigue and often an enlarged spleen.
Peggy was diagnosed with this condition months ago. She began treatment with conventional medications and continued to see her doctors regularly. However, the day came when God told Peggy to fight harder. She was recommended to see a doctor at Mount Sinai in NYC. After many visits and meeting with other doctors, it was decided that Peggy would undergo a bone marrow (stem cell) transplant. So the calls went to family and the donor registry. Peggy has 2 sisters and a brother. By God's hand her one sister was a perfect match and very eager to donate and help Peggy in any way possible. So the ball began to roll and things started to line up and after a couple months of the preparation her journey to healing and a cure has begun.
It's going to be a long process with months in the hospital. The family welcomes all the support and prayers you want to give. She has strong family support, her faith is strong, and God is in control.
We will keep you posted as the journey continues on this site. Look for major updates here along with standard posts. Your words of encouragement and prayer support mean more to Peggy than anything else.
