The time spent preparing for and doing the stem-cell harvest to the actual transplant and recovery were some serious physical and mental anguish, but it did not stop my wife and I from fending off an insurance person or a social worker or two when "the first rule was obey all rules".
I met inspirational people in the person of my first hospital roommate, my sister, and many other friends that have cancer. Talking to them and remembering times we had were an important foothold I had living
