Blood and marrow transplant patients came together for a reunion to celebrate their victory over cancer.
This was the 20th annual Alexander B. Osborn Malignancy and Transplantation Reunion. It was put on by the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center and WVU healthcare. 47 survivors were at the Lakeview Resort in Morgantown to enjoy lunch and a chance to win some raffle prizes. Since 1992, more than 1,000 patients have received a life-saving procedure from the Osborn Program. Organizers said the reunion is a happy time for all.
Crystal Peck, a registered nurse, said, "They build relationships with other patients away from home, so this gives them time to come together, meet each other and also the staff gets to see patients on an annual basis and see how they're doing."

The Osborn Program is West Virginia's only source for blood and marrow transplants.
