September 29, 2009

We are new to setting up a blog, but wanted to create something to keep you all informed on what is happening with Casey. He is currently in Room 6126 at Hershey Medical Center getting another mega dose of chemo. He should be in until Friday or Saturday. His room is large with a mini frig (no beer), a flat screen tv, a comfortable bed and fresh/clean air pumped in. He may not want to come home. I guess I'll be stuck with his 2 cats!! His spirits are good which helps all of us. His biggest complaint these days is the Phillies closing pitchers.

They are searching for bone marrow donor match, since Stevie did not pass the test. There are 4 possible matches, but they still need further testing. Our neighbor is setting up a bone marrow drive on December 1st from 3-7. Location needs to be confirmed. The cost for testing is $25.00 per person. If anyone needs a graduation project, a fundraiser for the bone marrow drive might fit the bill.

Thank you for all of the support, thoughts, cards and prayers.

We will keep you updated.

  1. Dear Peggy,

    I am in the bone marrow donor system already. I suppose they check here first??? If not, I will gladly be screened again.

    My regards to Casey. I hope he is comfortable and tell him I miss him. Hope this round goes easy on you!

  2. Mrs. Coble,

    Let me know if you need any help planning/gathering support for the drive. I can help with any organization of it or at the very least make sure to spread the word through the Carolina Swimming community.

  3. Mrs. Coble,

    I would like to get screened to see if I can donate to Casey. I'm not familiar with the process but if I can get some information on how to get start the process, I'd appreciate it. If your family needs anything, please let me know.
