Live Letter to my Donor

I received a bone marrow transplant in 2015 from an unrelated donor. As part of the transplant protocol for two years, as the bone marrow transplant recipient, I am unable to have contact with my donor and vice versa.

I’m happy to say the two-year restriction on communication is over! I’m so excited, hopeful, and determined to physically meet my donor. We have exchanged a letter through a third party for our communication as of now. The third party is our only way of communication until both parties (donor and recipient) agree to exchange personal information.

I'd love to meet the woman who saved my life

We have both agreed to one day meet in person. Unfortunately, COVID has made this a bit difficult. I continue to write letters and I figured I would get creative by doing a live letter to my donor, in hopes that she may come across this live letter one day!
