Perfect Match Found for Jocelyn McGlynn

Great news for an aspiring doctor from Chatham.

Jocelyn McGlynn, who is fighting acute myelomoncytic leukemia, says a stem cell match has been found.

“They have found a 10 out of 10 perfect match for me,” says McGlynn in a Facebook post. “So my stem cell transplant, on my new birthday, will be on February 20.”

As heard on AM800 News last month, numerous swab and blood clinics were held for McGlynn who is in remission, to help in the search for a stem cell donor.

“Thank-you so much for your support and for keeping me strong through this guys,” adds McGlynn. “It's working, things are rolling and I'm so excited.”

The 21-year-old is aspiring to find a career in health care.

She is a fourth year student of the medical science program at Western University in London.
