"I have enjoyed being here immensely because of my sister Robin. My sister Robin was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome and she was given less than two years to live. Her only chance of survival was to have a bone marrow transplant and she needed a match.”
 
Sally-Ann knows, first hand, the dramatic effects of Cancer. In 2012, Robin was diagnosed with a blood disease known as MDS. Luckily, Sally-Ann was a match and was able to donate her bone marrow to help with her recovery.

"And as many people know, it's very difficult to find a match, even in one's own family. Only 30 percent of the people who need a bone marrow transplant can find someone in their family. They have to go to the national marrow registry, which is really an international registry for bone marrow recipients. But, I was a match for my sister and my sister is doing well today.”.

She is grateful to the doctors and scientists that have contributed to the breakthrough research that has helped people like her sister. Yet, as a woman of deep faith, she also holds high praises to the work that comes from above.

"Whether they are working directly with the patients or whether they are working in a laboratory. They are making a difference in the lives of people and than also on this Holy ground because I do believe that God gives all power and I believe that he is the essence of everything. So, it's just science and faith coming together. It's just overwhelming.” 

This event held by the Stem for Life Foundation, STOQ and the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture aims to continue their voices of unity by exploring new frontiers in the advancement of new technologies by medical solutions to serious illnesses.
