Betty’s Leukemia Medicine Fund

My name is Betty Hayes and I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) in 2007.I am asking for help to fund my medication expenses, specifically for Gleevec. A 30 day supply of Gleevec is approximately $12,000 per month now. I was only able to afford it with the help of Patient Services Incorporated (PSI), a non-profit 501(C)(3) premium and co-payment assistance foundation. However, legislative changes now prohibit PSI from providing more than $6,500 per family, per year. Gleevec has held my CML in remission since 2007 and the alternatives are not working. My prayers are that enough people hear my story so I can raise enough money to buy some Gleevec in 2019. I am hopeful that PSI will have won their court case and will once again assist with my full medicinal expenses. Please watch my video for more details, donate if possible, and pass along to others if you would. God Bless and Thank You. Betty
