If you are reading this, then you probably know the story of my brother-in-law's plight with CML (Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia). It is a form of leukemia that starts in the bone marrow. It is a cancer of the white blood cells. Bill recently finished the initial bone marrow transplant but is in need of a 2nd round of treatment.
I feel that one of the ways I can help out is by taking on some of the financial burden that the Harris family is faced with. Bill's medical condition leaves the family with one less income. He does not qualify for SS disability or SSI.
I'll be blunt. I've taken on a "portion" of the medical bills totaling slightly under $25K that is NOT covered by health insurance. I maintain the medical payments through donations which I've been able to attain only from close friends and family. A fund which is now exhausted. This expense is aside from other current and/or future medical expenditures that my sister, Connie, continues to handle. The medical invoices continue to pile.
I now feel the need to branch out in my desperate attempt to help my sister's family. I love them dearly. All of the proceeds derived from this site will go directly into an account to help the Harris family with daily living expenses AND medical expenses. I realize that we all have problems. I know that everyone has a story. All I can ask of you is to give my plea a second thought. To those of you who have already donated, words cannot express how grateful I am.
Bill continues to fight. My sister is his ROCK. Life goes on. Through it all, we are still blessed!
