Today is a sad day; Michael Cranford has lost his battle with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. I do not have complete details but I do know that he did not respond to oral therapy and underwent a bone marrow transplant a little over a year ago. He fought the uphill battle, until the bitter end. He was a warrior!
Losing Michael is a grave reminder to those of us living with CML to be diligent in our treatment and live the healthiest lifestyle that we can. It also should encourage us to support researchers in their continued quest of a cure for CML. We must all remember that we DO have cancer and that we should spend each and every day, living our best life.
Michael leaves behind a wife, Michelle Cranford and a daughter Becca. If you would like to offer condolences you may do so here:
