IF WE CAN JUST HELP A FEW PEOPLE ALONG THE WAY…
By Michael and Julie Creedon Linton
When we learned that our then 4 year old son had a one in a million potentially life threatening genetic mutation, our family could not sit back and wait to see what happened. Starting in March 2020, our family launched the "Brothers for Bryce" Campaign. This campaign strives to create awareness of what stem cell transplants are, how the procedure is done, and the profound fact that someone could save another person's life by participating. This book was written to help people understand what Bryce is going through with his condition, but also to serve as a call to action.
With the help of Be the Match, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, happily we have introduced thousands of people to the National Marrow Donor Program in hopes of finding that one person who will match Bryce, or another lucky recipient.
Our doctors, nurses, and caregivers on this journey have been second-to-none. You are all supportive and instrumental in Bryce’s care. Thank you to the UMass Memorial Medical Center team and the Boston Children’s Hospital team!
We also could not continue this journey without the support of our friends and family- words cannot express how much we appreciate all of you!
I encourage you to visit Bryce’s website to learn more about him and to support Be The Match. Maybe you are his match!
