Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Tricia's underlying medical condition is named MYELOFIBROSIS. It is a rare, blood-cancer-like condition for which there is no known cure with the exception of a successful transplant which means her blood will be the same as her donor's, a man from Germany! We expect Trish to be at or very near Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, for about four months. We are now at Seasons Hospice House in Rochester, Minnesota for Tricia's final days. Her immune system rejected the Stem Cell Transplant and she has experienced severe and acute GVHD (graft-versus-host disease) since December 26th, 2017. Tricia passed away the evening of March 13th, 2018, at hospice in Rochester, Minnesota.
