“I look forward to many more games...

As an Ohio State Buckeyes fan, fall is one of Dennis’ favorite times of the year.  However, after returning from a football game in September, he didn’t feel quite right.  A visit to his doctor for blood work resulted in an immediate blood transfusion. It took several founds of testing before he was sent to an oncologist and diagnosed with aplastic anemia.

For five months, Dennis underwent a radical form of chemotherapy to rid his body of the disease.  During that time, he received more than 125 units of red blood cells and just as many platelets. His white blood cell levels gradually started to rise and Dennis began to feel like himself again.  But, like everyone who has dealt with a serious illness knows, this was an uphill battle. After his white blood cell levels dropped again, it was decided that Dnnis needed a bone marrow transplant.  Fortunately, his brother was a 100 percent match.

Today, Dennis is free of the disease. Thanks to local donors like you, he is able to spend time with his wife, three children and five grandchildren, and looks forward to many more football seasons as a Buckeye.
