Orange for Anna

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Anna is a family friend who has been battling Leukemia for the past 2 years. She was a few doors down from Mom in the hospital a few times and she and her family were so wonderful answering all our questions, and giving us advice on how to deal with a diagnosis of Leukemia.

She received a bone marrow transplant earlier this year and was pretty much in the clear. She and her family have been looking forward to spending Christmas at home this year, rather than at UAB. However, as of last night, it looks like her Leukemia has returned. A bone marrow biopsy today will confirm weather this is the case or not.

In honor of Anna, and my mother, I have created an Etsy treasury compiled of every shade of orange-the official color of Leukemia and Lymphoma Awareness.

I don't normally do this but I am asking for prayers, well wishes and general positive energy for Anna and her family today. They sure need it.

I'm so sorry to hear about Anna. She sounds like a very strong and inspiring person. I hope that everything goes well and that the Leukemia has not returned. Many well wishes and prayers on their way.
