Marrow Masters

Kelly Barnwell Shares Her Journey and her Haplo Experience

Episode Summary

Kelly Barnwell was an RN in the Emergency Room in a Level 1 Trauma Center in Atlanta, GA in the summer of 2017 when leukemia walked into her life. This tough health care hero shares her determination and her personal journey.

Episode Notes

Diagnosis: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). 

Merely 45 years old at the time, this wonderful lady has much to share in the past three years! Kelly has had two transplants, the second being a haploidentical transplant, a haplo. Get ready to be inspired. 

Note: At the time Kelly recorded this podcast with us in the spring, she was in remission. Since then, she has had a relapse but we are so happy to say she is getting through this next chapter and hoping to make a full recovery.
