NEW YORK, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- Mary Travers will join Peter Yarrow and Paul Stookey for their annual New York holiday concert, seven months after undergoing a bone marrow transplant.
Travers, 69, found out in December that her acute myelogenous leukemia had returned. A posting on the Peter, Paul and Mary Web site seeking bone marrow donors and good wishes received an overwhelming response, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.
Longtime fan Paul Kehoe organized all the wishes in three-ring binders and said Travers read every single one of them.
"She particularly loved that a lot of people sent jokes," he said.
During rehearsals for a Dec. 9 concert at Carnegie Hall, Travers said recent tests showed no leukemia cells and she feels much better.
