|A site to let you know there is someone out there who has
gone through what you are going through.
A Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Survivor
and her Caregiver.
|My name is Aldeane Sööt and I am a survivor of a Bone Marrow
Transplant (BMT) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in
Seattle, Washington in November 2002 for Myelodysplastic
I am not medically trained in any way. My hope is to be able to give
some insight from the patient's side of a bone marrow transplant to those
who are interested.
My husband, Peet Sööt, was my caregiver and was at my side almost
every minute of my hospitalization and recovery. He wrote a section
from his point of view on my illness and recovery.
We are both Orthodox Christians and our faith helped us tremendously
through this ordeal. God has seen fit to let me survive and I am hoping I
can do whatever it is He thought I could with the lessons I have learned.
