Beating Cancer Together!!

David Leos, a 33-year veteran Dallas firefighter, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on August 7, 2014. Doctors at Medical City Dallas have said he'll likely be spending the majority of the next year in the hospital, requiring multiple rounds of chemo and eventually a stem cell transplant. David’s wife, Carol, and three young daughters live in Lindale, over 90 miles from the hospital. The family is facing not only medical bills, but also transportation and lodging costs. It is times like these that we have an opportunity to lend a hand to a family in need, to support a brother who has dedicated his life to helping others. Please support this first responder and his family.



The family homeschools--which doctors are happy about, because it means David will be exposed to far fewer germs while his immune system is offline. However, the new logistics of living out of a hospital will require better access to lessons and schoolwork via computer. Immediate needs include obtaining 3 tablet style computers for David’s three daughters during this year ahead on the road visiting Daddy. The family will also need to redo large portions of their home in order to provide a more sterile environment for David as his immune system is wiped out before and after the transplant. The needs are major and your generosity will make this landing that much softer for the Leos family.
