Bone Marrow Transplant
One of the biggest problems this family is having right now is money. Rich and his wife have an apartment in Tampa (where they go to school), and there have been big bills for the family to cover, as they are still waiting for Social Security Disability to approve him for Medicaid. His parents and siblings are helping him in every way possible, but their resources are limited. Even when Medicaid does kick in, there will still be big bills not covered that the family will have to deal with. Plus, the added knowledge that under the Family Medical Leave act, his job will only be held for him until August, and there is NO way he will be back to work by then, as he will have to live in a "bubble" for some time after his transplant until his body is healthy enough to be exposed to "the real world".
I am asking for your help. If there is anything you can do to give Rich and his family even the smallest bit of financial aid, it would be greatly appreciated. Pleas do not hesitate to contact myself or Linda Archambault for any more information you would like.

If I had the funds right now I would give as much as I could. Unfortunately, I don't. I do plan on donating blood/plasma on your behalf here in TN so that one person in need will have access. I'll be praying for you man.
