HALIFAX – Rod Wilson is resting in Halifax after undergoing his second stem cell transplant on Thursday night.

In a message to the Amherst News, the 41-year-old Dooly’s manager said he’s doing OK, but tired after the two-hour procedure.

Wilson will be in Halifax until mid-January at the earliest and will celebrate Christmas with family in the city.

Wilson began a public awareness campaign over the summer when he discovered his cancer had returned after being in remission for 18 months. Turning to social media, Wilson urged people to consider being a stem cell donor and while he hoped the campaign would find his match, he also wanted to increase the number of people on the registry.

Officials from One Match Canada came to Amherst in September to collect samples from more than 300 people while many more people registered for swabs online.
