Tri-Cities woman thankful for bone marrow donor, hopeful for future

It is an update to a story we first brought you about a year ago.

Erinn Hollo, a young mother from Bluff City, was diagnosed with leukemia last summer.

When we spoke to her this time last year, she was fighting for her life, and desperately looking for someone who could be a match for a bone marrow transplant.

When we caught up with Hollo on Tuesday she told us that miracle match came in March.

Erinn still had to undergo more chemo and radiation treatments in order to prepare her body for that bone marrow transplant.

We are happy to tell you she is in the recovery process, and even better news, so far, Erinn tells us she is getting good test results.

“I’m so thankful for my donor, for somebody being on the match and making that sacrifice to donate his marrow. I’m here with my babies, and I spend every day with them. We try to live day to day, but we do think about the future a lot, and I just pray that this was my answer, and was my cure,” said Hollo.

Hollo hopes to meet the bone marrow donor who helped save her life.

She told us she has to wait a year from the time of her transplant in order to find out who that man is.
