Patient Success Story- Laura and Tommy Forsythe


Tommy Forsythe was first treated at the University of Maryland Medical Center for AML and ALL leukemia in February 2008. After a stay at another hospital for a bone marrow transplant, he returned to UMMC for treatment for an infection at the hyperbaric chamber in the Shock Trauma Center. It was there he met Donna Audia, a nurse on Shock Trauma's pain management team and a certified Reiki master who performed Reiki on Tommy. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. Not only did this healing modality ease Tommy's symptoms, but it also inspired him so much that he decided to become a Reiki master himself. Tommy and his mother Laura share their stories in this video.
