Eileen's Stem Cell Transplant



This past August Eileen Cox was hospitalized with a broken hip.... we later found out it was caused by a type of Cancer called Multiple Myeloma.  After making an amazing recovery from hip surgery, Eileen has spent the past couple of months attending Radiation, Physical Therapy, Chemotherapy and following Dr.'s orders so that she will be a viable candidate for a Stem Cell Transplant at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.   Eileen is scheduled to check in on January 24, 2018  - where she will follow the Stem Cell Transplant protocol  - an exhausting process that will take an estimated 8-12 weeks.  During this time Eileen will be paying for her own accommodations along with that of a 24/7 Caregiver.  After 30 years of paying health insurance premiums we were recently informed that because Eileen is 67 instead of 65 or younger, her insurance will not cover the majority of her stay.  Eileen's estimated expenses have  skyrocketed and we are asking for your help in quickly raising $7,000.  Housing is the greatest expense as the majority of Eileen's time will be in the Outpatient Clinic which requires her to stay within 30 minutes of downtown Seattle for approximately 3 months.  Through Music, Dance and Education Eileen has influenced generations..... if she has been a part of your life and you are able to help, please do.
