Beth is a fellow leukemia and stem cell transplant warrior who goes to the same blood and marrow transplant program at Northside Hospital in Atlanta as I do. Although we never met in person, I connected with Beth through Facebook about a year ago. Back on November 2018, I posted Beth Wilson’s story on her recovery from stomach cancer, then leukemia and stem cell transplant…read her story here.
Recently on March 23, 2019, Beth went to Germany to meet her bone marrow donor for the first time. CNN caught wind of the meeting on Beth’s facebook postings and was present to videotape the overwhelming meeting between Beth and her donor. Based on the CNN coverage, over 300 people registered to be a donor on Be The Match that day alone! Click on the picture or link below to see the story.
