Tim Provo, owner of Elements Exhibits, received his bone marrow transplant on Feb. 19 in Chicago.
A really quick procedure, Provo underwent the transplant, similar to a blood transfusion, in his hospital room. He received two small bags of cells, which were blessed by the hospital chaplain before the procedure.
While in recovery, he is feeling good, but, as of press time, the side effects have yet to hit. While it is expected, and necessary, for him to experience symptoms of Graph vs. Host, all are hoping his symptoms are mild. He is incredibly diligent about following all of the precautions provided by his doctors for a quick recovery.
If you would like to contact him, he can be reached via mail after March 5 at Northwestern Memorial Hospital; Contemporaine Building; Attention Tim Provo, 14th Floor, in care of Jon Butcher; 201 W. Grand Ave., Chicago, IL 60654. Text and voice mail messages can be sent to (585) 269-9658 with e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
