Hello Friends and Family,
This Thanksgiving is a very special day for the Helfman household. It marks a critical milestone for us notching our 2nd year anniversary since my sucessful stem cell transplant. The first two years are the most critical time in assuring that my long-term prognosis is strong and the odds are positive for me to be around for a while enjoying my wonderful life in Eagle Idaho.
As many of you know, I have donated a great deal of my time volunteering with Be the Match and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I have attended over 10 Donor drives with BtM and work with LLS in their First Connection program where I am connected with patients around the country that are recently diagnosed with Leukemia and need to speak to someone who has "Been through the process" to help them better understand what they are about to undertake, help answer their concerns, and offer support.
The good news is I am feeling great and dealing with minimal health issues. I am extememly greatful for Be the Match for finding my "One and Only" stem cell donor. In celebration of my "Birthday" I have set up a Fundraiser Page to help others. If possible please contribute a small donation (no more than $35.00) to help this Great Organization
Happy Thanksgiving to you all and Happy Birthday to me...Love Jeff
