14 May 2002
A Plea for Relatives of James Richard Mackay And
Others To Volunteer For Bone Marrow Matching.
"My name is Marisa
Mackay the newest member of the Mackay clan. My husband is James
Richard "Scott" Mackay. He was born and raised in Thurso Scotland
and is now residing in the U.S.
He has been battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
for 3 years and is now in desperate need for a bone marrow transplant.
Unfortunately no-one in the US including his 2
siblings have matched. It seems that his best chance is with his
ancestors and his Scottish heritage. I noticed on your website
that you are having a blood draw on May 14th - funny but that will be his
28th birthday. I am writing to you in hopes you can help me get
everyone you can to become a bone marrow donor.
This is the only thing that can cure Scott. A
blood drive is a perfect time as the resources are there and available.
To be tested it is a simple blood draw and if you match it is 5 days of
shots 2 times a day then a day of giving blood so to speak, a IV in one
arm to get blood out so it can be processed in a machine to retrieve stem
cells, and a IV in the other arm to give you back the rest.
If there is any way you can help to coordinate with
the blood drive people to get as many people volunteering I would much
appreciate it. I am having drives here but as I said his best
bet is in Scotland and I have no resources to do a drive in another
country. If you know of anyone else who can help please let me
We have 3 children and he has much to live for.
There is someone out there who will match and save his life.
I just need help to find that person....."
To help identify relatives Marisa has sent in a
list of some of James's relatives - if you know anyone who is related
speak to them to see if they would be willing to be tested as a possible
donor to help try to save James.

26 May 2002
About us here in Dunfermline.
Jean Sewell who is aunt to Scott and sister to Scotts father Jim Mackay.
Barry Sewell uncle by marriage to Scott
Tracy Macmillan our daughter first cousin to Scott
Our son-in law Gordon Macmillan
Ian Sewell our son cousin to Scott and in the Navy
When we spoke to the Anthony Nolan manager locally he told us that there
was no difficulty in getting personnel back from a ship if they were
required as a donor. We asked this because both my son Ian, and Scotts
other uncle George Mackay, in Plymouth, are serving in the Navy.
We are trying to sort out with our hospital how to get tested for a match
for Scott as Jean and I are too old for the register and we have e-mailed
the consultant in USA to drive it from that end.
It all depends where you live because Jean's brothers have managed to get
the tests done by sending blood to there local hospitals, one in London
and one in Glasgow.

From The Scott Mackay Family Web Page
Scotts celebration of life service today,,I am so honored at the number of
people who came..People were actually out the door,,and in the basement
trying to get in.. Many nice stories were shared. Thanks to all who stuck
out the heat,,as it was quite warm in the church. I couldnt have asked for
a better turn out..Friends and family,,thats what Scott was all about,,and
I know he was happy with our day.. This was closure for many and I hope we
all can keep Scott fresh in our memories and carry him in our hearts. He
was a true inspiration to all who knew him,,if even for 5 minutes..He was
so full of life,,I still cannot believe he is no longer at my side..For
those of you who have offered their extended friendship to me and my
children , even though Scott is no longer here,,I thank you.. Scott made
it a point of asking everyone, to please take care of me and the
kids..Always looking out for me,,,but really,,I havent had the opportunity
to get to know most of you,,and I hope we will have the chance..He loved
and adored you all, and I am honored you have offered to remain part of my
life. This will be my last entry, so thanks again to all of you who "tuned
in" to our daily adventure. I hope you have all taken a close look at your
lives,,and take nothing for granted. It is not the amount of breaths we
take,,but how many breath taking moments we have. Live life to its
fullest..And in the end,,we shall meet again.. Marisa
Scott Mackay has lost his battle
with cancer and died. We are sad to hear of this news and send our
thoughts to Marisa and the rest of the family.
Bad News From Marissa
Scott's Web site
Well its day +26 our four month
anniversary (wedding) and our news is grim. The fluid in Scotts right lung
is encompassing about 90% of the lung. The doctors are at this time giving
him a few days to a week to live. I have notified all family, Jim and
Lindy are on their way and Sharron is out of town,,but is being tracked
down. Sara is on her way to our house. Scott wants you all to know he
loves you all and a few other choice words I cant post,,(use your
imagination) Hospice will be coming tonight and he will receive a hospital
bed and oxygen at home as well as morphine to make him comfortable.
He opted not to stay in hospital at this time. We will get thru this
together..Love to all Marisa
Marisa Mackay Updating A Family Web Site
Marisa is now posting updates on a family web
site as there are so many people to keep informed of Scott's progress
10 August 2002
From Marisa Mackay
Just wanted to let you know Scott is 9 days past transplant,,all is
going as planned,,he is battling low blood counts as well as a blood borne
infection, but other than that hes doing as expected. Today he had a
wee increase in his WBC which tells us that the marrow has found its way
and is trying to work, he is engrafting. We are very excited.
They are not giving him the anti-rejection meds as in protocol. They
want the graft vs host disease. His tumors responded well to the
chemo,,now they need to stay away for 3 months in order for the donor
immune system to take over. Our spirits are good, thank you for your
support. Marisa Mackay
29 July 2002
From Marisa Mackay
Hi just wanted to touch base and let you know that Scott went into
the hospital Thursday to start his pre-treatment for the BMT. He
will receive chemo for 6 days (today is day 4) and then get the donor
cells on Tuesday night. Lets pray the donor is strong , healthy, and
has an above average immune system. Scott's tumors are still here, but are
responding to the chemo. After the donor cells are transfused they would
normally give Scott anit-rejection meds , but they wont be. They
want the graft vs host response as this is his only chance for this
transplant to work. He will most likely get very sick from the
attack on his entire body but hopefully they will be able to treat those
side effects. He is fairing well considering all he has been through
the last 3 months. The roller coaster of tumors/ no tumors/ tumors/
no tumors etc...Lets pray they will be gone forever this time. Marisa
18 July 2002
From Marisa Mackay
Hi to all,
The transplant is confirmed to take place at approximately 7pm on July
31st . Scott will be going to the hospital on July 24th at 09:00.
They will start high dose chemo on July 25th and it will go for 6 days
straight. They are jet flying out his cells as they would a heart
for a heart transplant. We are very excited to get this under way.
We both want to extend our thanks for those of you out there who have said
prayers, sent cards, donated money, donated blood for bone marrow testing,
offered to watch the kids, cooked meals, and to Melinda and Kevin for
flying Alysa here and back, it has meant the world to us. We could
not have made it without your support and prayers. He is home and doing
well ............. Marisa
15 July 2002
From Marisa Mackay
Just wanting to let everyone know that Scott is home tonight after a short
hospital stay in which he received 5 doses of chemo --3 different types.
Hopefully this will hold him over until the high dose chemo begins on the
22nd. He is doing fair and looking forward to starting with the transplant
regimen. Marisa Mackay
7 July 2002
Hi to all,,,just wanted to update everyone,,,Scott went to the doctor
today as he hasn't been feeling well, and unfortunately the tumor marker
-- the LDH enzyme---was elevated yet again, which means that those
aggressive tumors are doing what they do best, we need 17 more days to get
him to the transplant. Please keep praying, as Scott needs them
right now. He begins his work up next week which will consist of all
major organs etc to be tested over 3 days, Monday ,Tuesday ,,and
Thursday.......it will be a very trying week for us,.......,Marisa Mackay
13 June 2002
Hi to all ; just wanted to let you all know Scott is going back to the
hospital ,,,seems these tumors are getting very aggressive,,and they can't
wait till Monday to start round 2,,,keep praying,,,Marisa
Scott Back Home 8 june
From Marisa Mackay
"Hi to all,,,just a quick note to everyone to let you know Scott came home
from the hospital tonight,,,We will be seeing the transplant doctor on
Tuesday,,,and he will let us know if we are to do round 2 of chemo next
monday,,,or if we can go straight to transplant,,however they are 99% sure
he will have chemo again,,,otherwise he is home with me and the kids- dog
- and his father and very happy to be here,,we are still very much in need
of all your prayers so keep them going please,,,will touch base again
Tuesday or Wednesday,,,," Marisa
Scott Gets Home On
Wednesday 4 June
Marisa Mackay tells us Scott is expected home from hospital on
Wednesday following his latest chemo treatment. Tumours have
responded well and they hope to begin transplant treatment in 2-6 weeks.
Scott's white blood cells have returned almost to normal after the latest
treatment. Following the bone marrow matches being traced the family
are very up beat and looking forward to Scott returning home.
Four Potential Matches for Scott
One match is 100% and three others are looking close.
The family are over the moon all over the place although there is still a
long way to go in terms of getting this put to good effect.

opportunity may be a few days or a week before the tumors will just come

Marisa Mackay Thanks Everyone For
Scott Mackays wife who is leading the campaign from
Illinois to save her husband Scott Mackay who is suffering from Non
Hodgkins Lymphoma, by finding a bone marrow match was on Moray Firth Radio
twice yesterday. Moray Firth Radio broadcasting to the
Highland Region helped raise the profile of the family who are trying to
get more people to take blood tests and go on to the bone marrow
registers. Marisa Mackay is receiving 20 - 30 emails a day now from
people all over and she would like to thank them for getting in touch.
Australians with Mackay family
history have been in touch. a list of one family tree has been
sent in and this does show where Mackays and other branches of that
particular family have gone. What it needs is for more people to
come forward for testing. Genealogy research may give us
- possibly too much - information on Mackays but it is helping to
raise the profile. Anyone who can trace connection directly to
Scott Mackay might still provide some useful leads.

From Marisa - Scott Family Set Up Fund
Things are going ok here...I have a drive set up May 25th but
unfortunately our government is not funding for drives in this area again
until September so I have set up a fund for Scotty...Family in Virginia
are also having a drive June 1st and they were able to get the cost per
person from $70.00 down to $21.00 with funding they had left for there
Scott visited the doctor
yesterday and we had to have more MRI's done to his brain and he will be
going for a spinal tap today or tomorrow,,,he has been showing signs of
the lymphoma affecting his central nervous system,,,but it may just be
adverse effects from the pain medications and steroids? Still is very
worrysome...So knowing that you and others are out there doing this helps
me take one step back to care for him...I have had lots of replies coming
from your web site...family of Scotts,,,friends he grew up with..its been
heart-warming...Anyway I am going to share with you the address and
account for his fund,,,as I am sure someone out there will be willing to
donate if they can...I have 2-3 months after the drive to foot the bill to
the blood bank,,,which is nice,,,nothing up-front.....the fund is..under

get information from the staff. Anyone who thinks they might be in
any way related to Scott can ask about getting tested and contact us here

From Scott's Big Sister
My name is Sharron Mackay, I am James Richard "Scott" Mackay's sister.
I am writing to say "Thank you" for all you are doing for my brother. It
was extremely disheartening (being his older sister) that I did not match
his marrow type and it's more frustrating still to feel useless. The
information you have posted on your website will be hugely beneficial in
assisting us in our search in Scotland for marrow matches for our Scotty!!
I wanted to express my most sincere thanks for all you are doing. To
anyone reading your website, "my thanks" go out to you all as well.
Donating bone marrow, or registering to become a bone marrow donor, is
probably one of the most giving things we can do to help save lives and I
encourage everyone to sign up. Thanks again.
