We will remember Bill as the doctor that was so caring for us in the Netherlands when I med him 15 september 2001 8 day's after the BMT from our daughter Daisy*in Amsterdam when he was there with his lovely wife and he shares the concerns about Daisy she should have a GVHD and he said to me I hope she will survive but MLD is so a cruwel disease and I cross my fingers she will make it! Poorly enough
Daisy is gone 11 october that year and our son Erwin got his BMT either 7 months after...

We're remembering Bill as we approach the anniversary of his passing on the 8th in 2005. He was our daughter Darcee's transplanter (she died in 1995 at age 10). He was also the inspiration for the MLD Foundation which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year with family conference sin 4 countries, 3 of which had never had a gathering of MLD families before!

Dean, Teryn & Lindy (age 31 with MLD)

Dr. Krivit began treating my son Eric, at the age of 4, for ALD, now 23, and against all odds at the time, Eric is still alive.

I can still remember vividly watching Bill play and interact with his kids in the clinic, and I remember thinking how much I truly loved and admired this doctor.

I spent many years watching Bill in the clinic and as the years past suddenly it became aware to me that Bill began to look older to me. I remember growing fearful because it suddenly...

Our Lindy just celebrated her 30th birthday. While she never met Bill, it brought back memories of her younger sister, Darcee, and all of those who cared for and loved her. Both have MLD. Bill was one who led the pack! Her memory lives on through Lindy and now in our 10th year, the MLD Foundation.

William Krivit or Dr. Bill as many of us knew him.
His life was an example of a life well lived. One that made a difference in the world. I can still picture him "giving orders" at the Wangsteen Clinic. Thanks to Bill we still have our Genna.

Wilm's tumor survivor from 1974.

My name is Anne (Ward) Carpenter. I was diagnosed with AML in March of 1990 and was sent to U of M for my BMT in July of 1990 at the age of 13. Dr. William Krivit was one of my many angels who saved my life. Thank you so much for sharing him with me. Nineteen years later, I am married with two sons (another medical miracle), who would not be here if it wasn't for Dr. Krivit. Take solace in knowing that with the lives that he saved and touched his memory lives on with us.
