Four years ago Barbara was diagnosed with myeloproliferative disorder. Since then many tests were conducted to determine her best course of treatment, which was decided to be a bone marrow transplant. Barbara relocated to a different state away from her family in order to undergo the procedure. Due to an infection, her transplant was put on hold, as she needed to have her spleen removed. Doctors then discovered that her white blood count had increased and her original diagnosis was wrong, Barbara had leukemia. She now must remain out of state while awaiting further testing and treatment.
