Pam's Bone Marrow Transplant

Meet Pam, a loving Mother and wife, cousin "Sister" to Tracy Davis Clinton who with God's blessing was able to see her daughter Tiffany get married as she has been fighting Chronic Myeloid  Lukemia for 6 years. After 3 years of taking a pill form of chemotherapy it stopped working.  Doctors were not sure what action to take next.  Fortunately, she was able to start a research medication. Sadly, after taking the second chemo drug, it stopped working after a year. 

 Doctors found another experimental drug they were sure would work. She took that chemo for 2 years. It too stopped working. Her last hope was chemotherapy in the form of injections. She was instructed to give herself injections 2 times a day, 12 hours apart for 2 weeks and then have a week off of chemo. Her white blood count was becoming too low at that point and her immue system was deteriorating.  She was extremely tired and was barley able to function at work or home. Doctors cut her injections back to boost her blood count but that too has failed.

Her last and only hope is a bone marrow transplant. Her doctors at the Mayo Clinic had found 3 possible donors.  Pam is now scheduled for a bone marrow transplant  August 15th.  She will be in the hospital for one month in ICU.  After ICU she will have to live within 20 minutes of Mayo Cancer Hospital and have a full time caretaker for 2-3 months.  All money raised will help with her medical and living expenses while she will be in Jacksonville (two hours from home).   ALL family members will be taking shifts as her 24 hr. care will go on for three months.  A very rough road ahead.  CAN YOU HELP?  Her last and only hope to see a grandchild, a sunrise, a rainstorm, things we take for granted, relies on a sucessful proceedure and recovery.  Thank you for your consideration, monetary donations, and prayers.
