Hey there, I’m Dac (well, that’s my nickname, which comes from David A Croach). Back in January, I started feeling pretty run down and tired all the time, so I went to my local doctor to get checked. The night of my appointment, my doctor called me back with the news that I had leukemia, and instructions to get myself to a hospital immediately. After mentally refusing that as a possibility (I mean, I was just tired!), I made it to UPMC in Pittsburgh where they confirmed the bad news.
A couple months and three inductions of chemotherapy later, my doctors say my best chance is for a perfect-match bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, neither my family nor the national registry has a perfect match donor for me, so I’m calling out for help. Be my perfect match, and help others in the process!
