For the past 20 years I have had the opportunity to work alongside a man whose incredible journey has no boundaries. From being told to go home and create a bucket list and prepare to die to being a man 25+ years later who has created an international bone marrow registry so no one should ever have to go thru what he did to locate a life-saving donor is amazing. Not only that he has so many firsts including being the first transplant recipient to run an organization like this, to creating an in-house Apheresis Center like no other to treat the Donors like the true un-sung heroes they are including an in house laboratory to now working on Cell and Gene therapy. This man never gives up! I am beyond honored to be a part of this journey and those we serve. When I think awesome this is the real deal!
