Update: Bone marrow transplant recipient doing well
In February, Brandman News contributor Margo Myers wrote about the family of Brandman Bangor campus alumni Craig and Margo Randle and the battle with sickle-cell anemia faced by 13-year-old Craig Randle Jr. On May 4, doctors transplanted bone marrow from 10-year-old Sophia Randle to her brother, his best hope for beating the disease. The story appears on the Kitsap Sun website.
“The road ahead won’t be easy. Craig Jr. must remain at the hospital another 1 1/2 months; then, he’ll live at nearby Ronald McDonald House for five to six months more. And even when he goes home, the family will have to sterilize — and keep sterilized — a full house. He’ll have to remain isolated for another six months or so,” wrote reporter Josh Farley in the Kitsap Sun.
