GVHD Wall of Hope Douglas

To smile and feel joy is the goal.

I have had GVHD since my bone marrow transplant September 2012. I am 10 years old with my new chance of being on earth, 55 in all. I feel accountable for this time, which could be a negative thing, since I am less focused and flexible. I have finally put on weight and with help from my family, namely my Army Ranger son-in-law now serving at Ft Benning, I am now lifting weights a bit. I have been able to slow down since the beginning and have paid more attention to life. Good friends are the best. To smile and feel Joy is the goal.   There is really only one source for that as we look upward for light and knowledge.
