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.
My name is Barry and I was born on April 9th, 2009. I have acute biphenotypic leukemia and I want to educate others about becoming a potential bone marrow donor. I passed away peacefully on Thursday August 5, 2010 at 1:05AM at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital with my mom, dad, and aunt by my side.
