Now I’m Committed

I’m at City of Hope, and I’ve just received my big dose of chemo to kill off my bone marrow. Tomorrow, I get the stem cells that were harvested from me put back in.

The idea here is to kill off the cancer in my bone marrow without killing me off, and then grow a new set of bone marrow from the stem cells.

My doctor thinks he’s actually cured a couple of patients, rather than merely extending the time until they relapse.

I won’t mind if it turns out I’m number three. Or even four.
