David Burge updates his journey with leukemia

My results came back today and the outcome was not as good as it could have been. I have one of the rarer types of leukemia. There is a 70-90% chance of going into remission but the remission is likely to be short (a matter of months) and they need me to go into remission sooner rather than later.

Medically, my only hope is a bone marrow transplant during the remission window. There is a 25% chance that my sister will be a match. If not, there is an international register of donors where they may still find a match. The bone marrow transplant is more likely to be successful with a matching sibling donor.

I still believe that my future is in God’s hands. If the transplant works I could still get through to enjoy seeing my children grow up.

    Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 2 Cor. 1:3-4
