Are You Living Your Life to the Fullest?

Live your life. Love your life. Help others. Love others.

Two years ago today, the world lost Michelle to leukemia. She was an inspiration and a fighter. Here's hoping her love of life is passed on to all who learn about Michelle.

Before she passed, Michelle's cancer coach asked her to create a video about all of the things that she loved and was proud of in her life. This video was played at the beginning of her funeral service on August 1, 2009.

Thank you to all who joined the bone marrow registry. You can still join via a link at Project Michelle.

This documentary was produced by Lauren Rudser, a graduate student at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism. Lauren contacted us in September 2008 and was interested in sharing our story through a documentary. We hope it provides a glimpse into the life of patients looking for a donor for a bone marrow transplant.
