Barry's Conditioning Chemotherapy

Barry has been in the hospital since Sunday March 28, 2010 (Day -9). He will get a lot of conditioning chemotherapy until April 4, 2010 (Day -2). He will then rest on Day -1 and not get any drugs on that day.  On April 6, 2010 (Day 0) he will get a bag of stem cells/cord blood infused into his body through his Hickman catheter.

Save Barry T-Shirts

Here is a picture of the Team Barry T-Shirts that we designed.  The Shirt has a really high quality resolution picture of Barry on the front.  If you want a t-shirt, I am selling them for $15 to raise awareness about becoming a stem cell/bone marrow donor.  Note that the actual cost of the shirt is $15 and I am NOT making money off the sale of these shirts.

Ode to Barry

Ode to Barry

I am an infant and am quite strong
Weigh me heavy, measure me long
I drink formula and eat baby food
All so yummy, all so good
This sickness will not take me down
Always smiling without ever a frown
God will make me strong and healthy
I know this to be true, I can tell
My name is Barry, remember it well
