I was diagnosed with Myeleofibrosis, a fatal bone marrow disease where the bone marrow becomes extensively scarred, in December of 2007. I learned of my illness when I had an unexpected gall bladder surgery and had uncontrolled bleeding, which resulted in a bone marrow biopsy to determine why I had bled. Though the condition could be controlled by medication, the doctors informed me that I would need a bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant within two years to survive.
