Three words: You are cured.
That’s what people with a chronic disease would give anything to hear. But the word “cure” isn’t heard enough. In fact, people hardly hear it at all. Only a tiny percentage of people who suffer from chronic disease ever get so lucky. Many are told at diagnosis that they won’t make it through the next five years.
That is what Mr. Watson, father of five-year-old Alex Watson, heard when his son received his diagnosis ofchronic granulomatous disease (CGD)–a condition where the name is almost as complicated as the disease itself.
But after two bone marrow transplants and 15 blood transfusions, little Alex was declared “cured” from CGD, as reported byThe West Australian. And the best part? It was a REAL Christmas miracle.
Alex’s parents can’t thank the donors enough.
