Our loving son, brother, dad, husband and great friend Greg Marcussen has been fighting Myelofibrosis Cancer for some time now. It was a shock to all to find out he was battling a rare Bone Marrow Cancer that has now lead to Anemia and a bad enlargement of his Spleen as well as possible Lukemia.
The doctors have given Greg 30 months to live unless he has a bone marrow transplant within the next two months. The transplant could be life saving at this point. We were so grateful to find his youngest brother, Joe, to be an exact match which gives Greg the best chance for survival providing his body doesn't reject the procedure.
Our family is asking our friends, neighbors, family and anyone who can help him in this fight and is willing to help us with donations for all of these huge mounting expenses now and for what's to come.
Joe will need to be in Wisconsin in the hospital for days of testing, blood work, shots to up his stem cells and the painful Bone Marrow extractions. Greg will be hospitalized at the same time as Joe for upwards of over a month just for this Transplant and many more times after. He will be undergoing extremely painfull heavy doses of Chemotherapy and Radiation and then of course the Bone Marrow Transplant if all goes well. There is a very long recovery time after the transplant. Greg can no longer work and needs help with his family and monthly bills as well as his mounting and still rising medical expenses. We are asking if everyone could find it in their hearts to donate and to help any way possible and we hope all of our strength together will help save Greg's life.
Our deepest gratitude is owed to all. Thank you so very much,
Beth Bonney-Grunewald (Greg's Mother) and The Marcussen Family
