Overcoming COVID-19- Transplant Patient Patrick Gee Shares His Story - Shared screen with speaker view
Hello Monica- welcome
Thank you David and all attendees for joining.
Anxious but hopeful
Blessed! it’s my 61st bday today
I feel great today.
I am doing well. 84 days after transplant. Tom Bush
Tom- congrats- so glad you are doing well
Happy Birthday Mill!
thank you Patrick for being vulnerable and sharing this. It is tough
Patrick, could you tell us what immunosuppressants and dosages you are on so we can better relate to how our own medications may effect our individual situations?
You, 12:19 PM Dr. Gee....Which medication were you prescribed as a safety precaution? The one the physicians wrote for to take once your wife was discharged from the hospital?
if needed, I’d review it with my physician.
thank you Patrick for sharing, being so candid and open.
So glad you and Tina are both doing better!!
Patrick, talk about being on Hydrochloroquin, Tom
Patrick, Thank you for always being open to sharing your story.
I'm so grateful that you both survived!
Love you Patrick
Do you have antibodies?
very surreal. I can relate, had the same thing happen to me too
Wow! What hospital was she in? Was it because they didn't have proper PPE?
That was horrible. Hopefully you followed up with patient advocacy. Tom
that's horrible. so sorry she had to go through that
That is awful to be sick, alone, suffering and mistreated.
I wonder if transplant recipients will be able to give antibodies to help others?
So glad you and your wife are doing so much better and together!
Thank you for sharing, Patrick! I am keeping you and Tina in my prayers. I hope you will both feel 100% soon!
Thank you to Patrick and CareDx for putting this zoom call together. So happy Tina and Patrick that you are doing better.
Wish you and your wife best in coming days, hope we will be normal in routine soon
Monica, I wonder also but I wonder if our antibodies from the transplant would affect that.
Thank you for sharing Patrick. I am praying for you both. You have given us hope today.
Thank you Patrick and CareDx to putting this together. this is much needed.
Nichole, I wonder that too.
Are costs of CareDx covered by Medicare?
Well said Patrick!!!
Yes!! Thank You
Yes!! I have had to stop paying attention to all the outside noise!!
How do you do outreach with those that do not speak English? Anyone
Hi Stephen, AlloSure is covered by Medicare. RemoTraC mobile blood draw is no additional cost for patients beyond what they normally pay in the lab. CareDx will cover the cost of the mobile draw.
appreciate you Patrick.
how can I use allosure or allograft
thank you so much for sharing. god bless you and your wife.
Much love you and your fam Patrick
