Someone Saved My Life Tonight

Fifteen years ago today, Dave received a bone marrow transplant from his sister.  CML leukemia was ravaging his body, had taken his hearing and his balance.  He was dying.  And thanks to his sister and the gift she so generously gave, he is alive today.  It really is a miracle, and I thank God every day for sparing his life.

Happy anniversary, David!
