Help Get Me To M.D. Anderson

It's all began back in 2006 when I was diagnosed with I.T.P. Me and my wife had just got married the same year found out I had a rare red blood plate disorder that ended up making me loose my spleen. Several year go buy and I experience service double Pneumonia cases. Along with sever sinus issues. In October of 13 it all came to a head. Th evening of Halloween I fell terrible I'll I had contracted a rare disease in my spine that when into my brain and I couldn't remember who I was who my family was anything. After many days in icu and several test nothing was coming back positive they had one last text to give and if that came back negative I would have to go to the Mayo Clinic. Well thank god a dr. Came in and said he test positive for common variable immune deficiency. Gave me a few treatments and I was finally out of the hospital right before Christmas that year. Well in July of 2016 I fell sick again and drove to the e.r and that's when the doctor ran blood work and come back and asked what my white blood cell count usually ran? I said I have no idea he said well it's at 55,000 normal is 5-10. After performing a bone marrow biopsy the results came back I had texted positive for the Philadelphia chromosome which meant I had chronic myeloid leukemia. Treated with a pill is contained and usually goes in remission after a couple of years. On October 6th 2017 I was given the news that my Leukemia had moved to the acute phase and would require and bone marrow biopsy to have any chance of curing this horrible cancer. As of right now I'm undergoing harsh chemo therapy to get to remission so I can have the bone marrow transplant as soon as I'm done. I'm not doing this for me personally but for my beautiful family. I am only 32 years old and have a long life to live. I will not let this beat me and anything given will be appreciated! Thanks for taking the time to read my story.
