quick trip to NJ
« on: July 21, 2017, 06:18:07 pm »
Hi everyone, 

It's been a while since I posted something but I thought I would post something great!

Our family made the trip this pass week to meet the young gentleman that saved my daughter Rayne's life with his bone marrow. We got to meet his family, we couldn't thank him enough!

A news reporter from our home town contacted us while we were there. Here is the article.

PS. Rayne is doing great. It will be 3 years this September since transplant.

  Uplifting, it's so nice to read about the good one person can do for another instead of the normal horror stories our news usually focuses on.

Thank You Steve for the update and link to the news article.  I have often wondered about her condition.  Our Prayers for Rayne's recovery were answered.
