After many years of issues with blood work, Stephen was diagnosed with MDS, a form of blood cancer, which if left untreated, will turn into leukemia. There isn't much treatment available for MDS other than medicines, which will only keep it in check, but not cure it, or a stem cell transplant. His blood work has been getting worse, so instead of opting for medication, his team of doctors suggested a stem cell transplant. Thankfully, Stephen's older brother is a perfect match. He was admitted to the hospital on 9/2/2016 with the transplant scheduled for 9/8/2016. You can follow along here to keep up to date with how he's doing and what's happening. It will be much easier than me answering individual texts and messages. Thank you everyone for all your support.
