    Sara is going back to school!

    In the event that Lisa, Sara's Mom, can't post, I thought I'd let everyone know that Sara got the go-ahead to return to school on Monday! Can't tell you how excited she is! I also can't believe that it has been less than 2 months since she had her transplant!

    Thanks to all of you for your suppport and information. Lisa had the counsel of Lisa S. at HCMA, without which she might not have gone to the appropriate Dr. or transplant center. Thanks to all of you.

    Go HCMA! Go CHB! Go Dr. Marty! Go Dr. Blume! Go Lisa Salberg! And mostly, Go Sara!!!
