Today in Thousand Oaks…

Today we caught up with Valerie, a 12-year survivor of a successful marrow transplant to cure her Aplastic Anemia.  We got a chance to visit with her family as well as see a little about her life.

Not only is Valerie an inspiring advocate for marrow donation, but she is also a very talented singer/songwriter.  We got a chance to hear one of her songs, written about her recovery journey.
