My Story

I am Haley. At 3 months old, I was diagnosed with CAMT, the inability for me to produce platelets. Platelets are one of the three main cells of the immune system, made by the bone marrow. This rare disease is known to develop into leukemia or aplastic anemia by the time I turned 1. And even though this genetic disease is rare, the treatment was clear: bone marrow transplant. I moved up to New York, and had my transplant done when I was 8 months old. I was a fighter, as I am now. And I'm 10 months out. On March 15, it will be one full year, and my new birthday.
