Have You Got A Match?

In 2008, due to a back injury at home, Veteran John Gould, Reg. #35693, ended up in hospital for a week.  During that time, while conducting routine blood work, John was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of blood cancer, Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia, which is a treatable but non-curable cancer.  The disease progressed to the point that John had to start chemotherapy.  After 8 rounds of chemo, the disease had advanced to where he was given a life expectancy of 3 years.  John’s last resort was a bone marrow transplant.  The following is a video produced on the story of John Gould:  https://youtu.be/bLhYLqA6x7A
