project michelle update: not looking good

If you follow the Project Michelle blog, you might have heard that things aren't looking good for her: How Do You Know When to Stop Fighting? To be honest, I don't understand all the numbers and details about blast cells and peripheral blood. It's just clear from the post that Michelle's condition has taken a turn for the worse.

27-year old Michelle Maykin was originally diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a cancer of the blood, on February 27, 2007. After undergoing 5 rounds of chemotherapy, Michelle reached a state of remission... only to find out a year later that she had relapsed. She is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant.

To learn more about Michelle and her fight against this disease, and to get information about how to register to be a bone marrow donor, go to the Project Michelle website here. You could save someone's life.
