Traci and DJ spoke with Joey's doctor today. They have decided Joey will definitely be going to transplant. Right now, as it stands, Joey's prognosis is "extremely poor." Transplant is their last option.

They have requested the transplant be done at City of Hope. City of Hope is supposed to be the best transplant facility in the state. Also, Traci personally knows a little boy who has had a BMT done there and sailed through with flying colors.

Traci had a chance to do some research and has decided she is not comfortable with using Joey's cells. This means they will need to find a donor. If you are interested in learning more about this you can go to marrow.org or PM me.

We do not know when transplant will be because Joey needs to be in remission first. As of right now, his file is being forwarded to City of Hope. The process has begun.

I'm already on the donor list. (Thanks to the previous child from one of my PRs... who's doing well, by the way!)
