What do you do when you are stunned by marrow failure diagnosis? Judi Wilkinson tells you here story here:
Her online research was how Judi found out about AAMDSIF, and she’s been a part of the Foundation’s family of volunteers ever since the year after she got well. During the difficult treatment phase at NIH in Bethesda, Maryland, Judi was alone and far from home. Hard as that was, it made her realize how much she wanted to help other aplastic anemia patients whose lives had been suddenly turned upside down like just like hers. In the process, she discovered she had a natural talent for educating people to help them make their own informed decisions. Having travelled the same path, she was able to explain the frightening medical jargon in simple terms and with a great deal of empathy.
