Many of you have seen the YouTube video, Keeping Cristy: One of Our Own, which is also on the One of Our Own website. Keeping Cristy: Part 2 chronicles much of what has happened to date with her treatment. Watch it here:
I don’t know how YouTube picks which frame gets to be visible as the title image, but in this case, they picked a transition moment, featuring John Crossley, the Director of Patient Services and Nursing at Anadolu Hospital, who just happens to be from Baltimore, Maryland, and the image of Cristy with her transfusion port. An interesting juxtaposition. I’d like to see that as a sign from home.
Also on the Cristy in Istanbul page of our website is a slide show featuring many of the pictures that have been included in Liz’s blog, which keeps us up to date on what’s happening in Istanbul.
Please pass these videos and our website along to others with your reminders that our funding is still far short of what we need to pay for this extraordinary treatment. Look for Keeping Cristy: Part 3 when treatment ends and her health has been restored.
