Flower Power for Sarah
This is a special request for Marion's daughter Sarah who has Biphenotypic Leukemia. Sarah and Marion are at Duke where Sarah is going through the preparatory process for bone marrow transplant. Marion has asked that we put Sarah in our prayers and make a flower to wear today.
Marion's Note ~ September 21st--That is the day Sarah receives her bone marrow transplant. She will receive stem cells from 2 cord blood units that day. The analogy the doctor's use is replanting a garden. So that is why I chose a flower to symbolize this important day."
These are the flowers that Marion is making for the staff at Duke and for Sarah's many friends. One of her friends designed the 'flower power button' for Sarah, above. Marion thought we might like to make a flower and wear it today with positive thoughts and prayers for Sarah.
