Here is wonderful news from Rosemary Tuohy, a good friend of Ronan’s family who we worked with on the Bone Marrow Registry Drive:

I have awesome news about Ronan Godfrey. Not only has a match been found for Ronan, but it’s a perfect 12 out of 12!!

He will be going in to City of Hope next Friday, June 10th to begin the pre-operative chemotherapy, followed by the transplant and recovery. Ronan will be in the hospital for two to three months.

Since they no longer need to worry about the risk of infection and a compromised immune system, Ronan and his family are taking time to do all the fun things kids and their families do. You can see photos of Ronan feeding the ducks, flying kites, and visiting the beach on his website,     [See some pics below of Ronan enjoying time with his family.]

Please keep the Godfreys in your thoughts and prayers as they begin the next stage in their journey toward Ronan’s recovery.

Thank you for caring about my young friend. We don’t know if Ronan’s match came from one of his bone marrow drives, but we do know that anyone who registered has the chance of saving another person’s life.

We thank you too, for doing what you can to help Ronan – and others like him – who need this life-saving procedure.  Whether it was to join the registry, volunteer at the drive, or to pray for him.  Let’s keep those prayers going!
