In 2007, Kevin Clancy went to the emergency room thinking he had a really bad cold. After undergoing multiple tests, he received the shocking diagnosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and was hospitalized for 10 days. During his hospitalization, he received 13 blood transfusions and learned a bone marrow transplant was critical to his survival. Because Kevin has a rare tissue type, doctors said it would be highly unlikely to find a donor match.
Thankfully a match was found, and he received his lifesaving transplant on May 26, 2011!
Kevin and his wife, Jeni, have two beautiful daughters who mean the world to them. His girls have been his inspiration in his fight against cancer, as he is determined to give his daughters the one thing he never had--a father. A San Francisco resident, he loves hiking, traveling, going to the beach and playing around the city with his family.
