Patrick, a bright 14-year old young man from Winnetka, CA had AML. Patrick went through 8 rounds of chemo and it did not help him achieve remission. He urgently needed a matching donor to have a bone marrow transplant that could save his life. Patrick found his a match and underwent a stem cell transplant last year and is doing well. He had some complications at the beginning but he was lucky to get over them and was able to go back to school last September.
