Medical Miracles

IâÄôm writing in regards to the article that ran in The Minnesota Daily this week celebrating the 40th anniversary of the UniversityâÄôs bone marrow transplant program. I attended the BMT anniversary event at Coffman Union last weekend and it was quite inspiring. My mother had leukemia and received a life-saving bone marrow transplant here at the University 15 years ago. I was too young at the time to remember the details, so the event provided me with a closer look at what the University has done for my mother and countless other people across the country over these last 40 years. I hope I can take this opportunity to thank the University for all the great things itâÄôs done that have had an impact on my family and myself and so many others. I am very proud to be a student here today, and I urge my fellow students to take a closer look at some of the things that go on here and take pride in the school they attend and represent. It seems to me that Driven to Discover isnâÄôt merely a slogan; some truly miraculous things really do happen here at our University. Adam Giorgi University student
