It was so great to catch up with Chief Meteorologist Chris Bradley, who will be part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's “Light the Night” walk. The event is critical to funding life-saving treatments.
We also talked about his recovery after a stem cell transplant in September. Chris told us that after three stays at The James Cancer Hospital, it is good to be home.
“We're not completely out of the woods yet but it's a relief," he said.
The journey has been filled with highs and lows. There was the word of a bone marrow donor but those hopes were dashed after that donor experienced medical complications.
Fortunately, there was another option in the stem cell transplant.
Through it all, Chris also shared that he is grateful for the kindness and support he and his family have received on this journey,
“I appreciate it I really do its' been very, very humbling and I think it makes a difference.”
For the next couple of months, Chris is an outpatient at The James where the medical team is monitoring the success of the transplant.
The stem cells come from the umbilical cord after a baby is born and the cord is cut.
