Didn't look like there was a consolidated Keneche thread on his progress so I made a new one.

Honor Kenechi Udeze, and Perhaps Even Save a LifeBy Anthony Hall | May 5th, 2008

Very moving story from Stephanie Stradley of AOL’s FanHouse. Her sister was diagnosed with leukemia in October 2005, so Stephanie is able to offer some insights into Kenechi Udeze’s path to recovery:

A patient’s [bone marrow] transplant day is often called their birthday. It’s like being a newborn because the patient has little immune system. Eventually, when the patient gets off of anti-rejection drugs, they have to get all their childhood immunization shots all over again

There was some interesting stuff in there about how the actual procedure goes, she says that donating isn't as painful as you hear.
