Introduction On Jan. 30, 2009, I had a rare fourth bone marrow transplant. This is my story of running into a diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia, or AML, in 2003 after feeling unusually winded while running a 10K race. It is a story of falling down and getting up and falling down and getting up many times over, with two relapses, life-threatening complications, life-long side effects... and a determination to keep moving. I am a freelance writer with a background in daily journalism. I have three children, one Labrador retriever and a debt of gratitude to my bone marrow donor. I have written versions of the story for The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer,, Marie Claire and Vice Media. I started the blog in 2008 with one story and found that I had many more to tell.
Interests Running, tennis, cycling, yoga, writing, reading books, reading the newspaper, keeping up with my kids, keeping up with friends and family, keeping up with politics, keeping up with the dog.
