WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 7: #JennStrong When you cared about more than just sports radio

On March 20th of this year, it'll be ten years since Jennifer Aparicio was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia that was later traced back to her work as a project engineer in telecom at 9/11 and the World Trade Center in New York City. As she fought for her life and awaited the first of two bone marrow transplants from a miracle German man who saved her life, our WNST community rallied to get swabbed for the bone marrow registry and the local charity There Goes My Hero. Jenn is alive and well and visited with her DNA twin Niels in Europe recently for NFL football in Franfurt. Meanwhile, we remain incredibly grateful for the support of our community here at WNST Baltimore Positive that kept her spirits high and hopes alive during her gruesome battle. Hug the people you love!
