Black marrow donors needed for Crawley to win his bout with cancer

REX CRAWLEY The last thing Dr. Rex Crawley ever contemplated he’d have to worry about while in the process of getting his doctoral degree at Ohio State University was cancer. His mind was on courses, his thesis, but not being diagnosed with the big C. But in 1995, while at school, he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, a cancer that starts in the lymphocytes, which are in the lymph nodes and other lymphoid tissue, such as the spleen and bone marrow. After being diagnosed, he weighed his treatment options and decided to have a bone marrow transplant, which left him in remission for more than 12 years. Then in 2011 he was re-diagnosed with NHL. The news of the return of the disease left him “surprised and devastated.” He underwent a grueling regimen of chemotherapy, which put him back in remission.
