Rebirth: A Leukemia Survivorís Journal of Healing during Chemotherapy, Bone Marrow Transplant, and Recovery
by Deborah Ludwig
Foreword by Stuart L. Goldberg, MD
One year after relocating to the New York area to pursue an acting career, Deborah Ludwig’s acting dreams were shattered by a leukemia diagnosis, forcing her to come to terms with her past and face her present reality.
Her sister Barbara, pregnant with her second child, was Deborahís bone marrow donor. Pregnancy is thought to be an absolute contraindication to bone marrow donation, but the inclusion of Barbaraís courageous and poignant tale disproves this belief.
Rebirth is Deborah’s year-long journal chronicling a story of love, sacrifice, heartache, and discovery that culminated in her physical, emotional, and spiritual rebirth.
