Something to Smile About

I received some pretty amazing news from my friend Kelli Shannon today!  Her husband, Ryan, got on the bone marrow registry as a result of the drive that took place last year when Sadie was sick.  He was contacted today and told that he is a match for a lady that is in need of a transplant!  Once he completes a physical, and assuming the patient is in good enough health, Ryan will be donat…ing bone marrow in mid-January!  It is absolutely overwhelming to me to think that someone’s life may be saved because of Ryan’s willingness, and as a result of my sweet Sadie’s journey.  I think about the person who is sick and in need of a transplant hearing that they found a match for her–a stranger willing to help save her life.  I think of her family and how they are probably clinging to this little bit of good news right now.  This all just brings me to tears.  Good tears.  Please pray for God’s perfect will in this.  Pray for the lady’s health who is in need of a transplant.  Pray for Ryan’s physical to come back good.  Pray for the family of this lady, and for Ryan and Kelli to be showered with blessings because of their willingness and sacrifice.  I know them, and they will give God the glory. 

About amberhilldavis

I've always been referred to as a "happy gal"...someone who could make light of almost any situation. But in December of 2012, my 17 month old daughter, Sadie, lost a 40 day/40 night battle with a very aggressive form of leukemia called CNS AML. This has taught me that everything in life is not mind over matter. Sometimes life is really really hard. I don't look at this as a reason to give up on life, though. God has brought me through lots of things--I know for a fact that He will not forget me now. And so now my true journey of complete faith in God Almighty will dictate my future. I plan on ending this story victoriously.

  1. Ahhh, Amber, Sadie is just waving that toy wand of sunshine all over the place…what a legacy that little bundle of joy and love has left…she’s done more in 17 months (+almost 12) than most of us will do in a lifetime. I am so excited for Ryan’s opportunity; I was chosen 2 yrs ago, but then didn’t make the final match requirements. If I can’t get her back for you, I will be happy & thankful that God lets us see how her big little life is still affecting this ol’ world beyond the hearts & lives of the ones who love her! Love you!

  2. What an amazing story and connection to Sadie’s life!!! I pray that this transplant will happen successfully and that many more will as well!.
