Debbie Radvany is a leukemia survivor whose life was saved by a bone marrow transplant.

The marrow was extracted, treated by chemotherapy and then returned to her body, a painful process that took several months. Suffering hair loss and constant nausea, Debbie derived courage from the visits of her husband and son. The separation from her family caused her more anxiety than anything else.
