AML Patient

Miami, FL

In October 2015, Gisenia Reyes heard the words "You have cancer." Diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), an aggressive type of blood cancer. She immediately underwent chemotherapy treatment to save her life.

Gisenia attained remission status, however, she still had a mutation in her blood work, which could cause her to relapse.

It was determined that she needed a stem cell transplant, but the concern now was to find her a perfect match to serve as her donor. Her prayer was answered when the doctors confirmed her identical twin sister, Lucy, was a perfect match.
