Colleen's Medical Fundraiser
Mom was recently diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia called CMML, which is a type of bone marrow cancer. She started Chemo down at the Mayo Clinic on November 28, 2016. There are 3 rounds of chemo to begin the process, 5 days on , 23 days off and repeat for several months.
After chemo is complete, mom will have a bone marrow transplant. They will be looking to see if her siblings are a match then will ask us kids. We are hoping that one of us, that are willing to donate will be a definite match. Once a match is found, the transplant will be scheduled. They are stating that she will have to stay down at the recovery house near Mayo for 3 months once that takes place.
There has been a lot of medical expenses and future medical expenses that we need help with. Any donations will go towards all current and future medical expenses with the Chemo and the bone marrow transplant, along with potential overnight stays. These procedures she has already had and will be having are very costly and have already added up quite significantly. She also had to leave her job and will eventually need help paying her bills.
We did not know how much to put down as a goal amount as we are happy just to receive $5 from everyone, every little bit helps whether it is to pay for a lab bill or go towards one of her bone marrow test, chemo treatments or the transplant.
I think we can say we are all apprectiave of just all the love and support that mom has so far received from everyone! We do not want anyone to feel obligated to donate, we are just happy that you are thinking of mom and happy that you came to visit her go fund me page.
Even a little note speaks volumes and shows that you care.
Thank you everyone. God Bless.
Hi there. I just read about Colleen's battle and I would like to offer to hold a benefit Younique party on Facebook and donate all of my profits from her party to her medical and living expenses, and need a family member or friend host it. Please message me on Facebook if you would be interested.
