Thank you for posting Penny's story. I know that you did you best but I just don't believe that anyone could understand the agony of dealing with something as awaful as leukemia when all the while you are being given hope that you will survive and your family will be left whole, only to be told over and over agin that the one person who can save you is too busy to make themselves available to save your life. You can accept that one person might have had a good reason to back out, even two....but FOUR?!?!?

Please, everyone who reads this....get swabbed and make yourself available. If you are lucky enough to be able to help, don't put another family through the Hell that these four people, as well as all the extended family and friends and neighbors who love and care for them all.

Please don't cause the kind of grief and anger that everyone who knew this amazing young woman is feeling now. God bless anyone who takes the time to read this rambling message. Thanks.

What kind of a person would take the tragedy of a young mother's death as an opportunity to place an ad for product? Shame on you!
