GVHD - A Medical Roller Coaster

My husband is in thankfully two years in remission from acute lymphoblastic leukemia due to a life-saving stem cell transplant. Our family is grateful for this time with him, but GVHD of the lungs and joints has left him quite disabled and unable to participate in many aspects of a "normal" life.  Though the acute phase of his illness has passed for the time being, the medical roller-coaster of this chronic condition continues.  We support all those enduring GVHD and those working to reduce this complication from transplant.
