Wynn Dee was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia when she was 17 years old. Wynn Dee had made it into remission, but not a year later, she had relapsed and it was decided that she would need a bone marrow transplant. Fred Hutch conducted an international search to find a donor and found a match from a generous man in Germany. His donation saved Wynn Dee's life and in 2001 she had successfully beaten AML for the second time. Wynn Dee was committed to serving a purpose in life and to helping others. It was a few years after her transplant that she was attending classes at Everett Community College to pursue a career in nursing - a field of work she had gained a passion for while being in the care of so many amazing nurses. A few years after her transplant, Wynn Dee suffered with complications from chronic graft-versus-host disease - an unfortunate result of her transplant. Her doctors worked very hard to manage her disease, but the GVH disease then gave her an aggressive lung disease - Bronchiolitis Obliterans. In the following years to come Wynn Dee's illness progressed leaving her with little to no lung function, requiring her to need supplemental oxygen at all times. The average life expectancy for someone living with Bronchiolitis Obliterans is six years. Wynn lived with this disease for over 14 and she proudly contributed her fight for life by enrolling in clinical trials to treat BOS and find new therapies for fungal infections. Wynn Dee's life still had a significant meaning and purpose even though she was never able to do all the things she wanted to do. She is a pioneer of the research that has been done and she inspired everyone to live their dreams no matter what life threw at you.
