COALA is thrilled to spotlight a very special colleague and friend, Lynn Irwin. Just a few months ago, Lynn was diagnosed with Idiopathic Aplastic Anemia, a rare and fatal disease without a bone marrow transplant. In short, this meant her body stopped making blood. Fortunately, for Lynn, her twin sister could be a donor. Thankfully, the bone marrow transplant was successful and Lynn is doing well. She is a shining example of strength and courage. We all were so excited that Lynn attended this month’s meeting!!
