Gratitude for Thanksgiving and Torben
Photo: Torben and Berte Christensen. Torben is my stem cell transplant donor from August 2007 and the one individual on earth who can claim to be related to me, not by birth, but via transplant.
I know that thousands of miles separate the Foxworths in Corona, CA, from the Schmidts in Germany, but for the remainder of my life Thanksgiving will be one of those days to reflect on the event now more than five years distant that caused our relationship. Thank you, Torben, for your gift of life to a total stranger.
