I am so excited to share the news that Will officially has a donor!
Do you remember when I posted about the 30 year old male that was a 10 out of 10 match?
Well, after hearing that news, we were told that while there was a match out there, we couldn't select a donor until Will was closer to transplant. This news did not sit well with me and Alex. The thought of just sitting around, knowing there was a perfect match out there, but not placing that match on hold was not something we were ok with.
So many questions raced through our minds. What if the donor was matched to someone else? We only had two potentail matches for Will so the thought of not "securing" one was stressful. I know these thoughts may seem selfish on our part but we have to keep Will's health and best interested in mind and that meant securing a donor as soon as possible.
After a meeting with our nurse practictioner and a few discussions with some of the BMT doctors at Texas Children's, we finally got word that a donor was selected and officially placed on hold with the National Registry! Will's donor is the man I posted about.
There are a few requirements since we are hopefully several months from transplant (things like providing a clinical update every 60 days) but, we have a donor on hold specifically for Will!
Prayers were heard and answered! I am so thankful to have such a strong community of believers praying for Will.
