Hello All,

We just found out Birdman's doctors are going to try to get him a "mini allo stem cell transplant" at Duke, using one of his siblings. We were wondering if anyone else has had this done and can give us any information on it? Thanks.

Dear BMW,

That's an interesting question. I don't recall anyone around here referring to having had a mini allo yet. I'd be eager to see what results you get from this.

I'm sorry Birdman is in need of a stem cell transplant. I wish he was doing well enough so that it wouldn't even be an issue. Please share with us the information you acquire about this, and keep us posted on how he is doing.
Warm Hugs,
