Garrick's Fight Against Leukemia

Hello!  If you know Garrick or Heather you know that neither of them will ask for help, however, they could use your help with prayers or donations now more than ever!   

Garrick 46, was not feeling well one evening, roughly two weeks ago.  By the end of the night, he was in the hospital and after a series of tests he was diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukemia (AML).  This is a fast growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow.  

Over the last two weeks Garrick has been fighting for his life.  Doctors were not sure if his system was strong enough to pull through. His immune system is extremely weak and he is on a ventilator.   With the love and support from Heather, his friends, and family, we know that Garrick will get strong enough to be transferred to a hospital where he can begin his second battle. 

The treatment for AML includes an aggressive chemotherapy treatment followed by a bone marrow transplant.  Garrick has a long battle ahead of him. 

Many of us have offered our support and prayers to Garrick and Heather and tried to think of ways to help.  We ask for your prayers and support for Garrick, Heather, and his family to overcome this battle. Your donations will help Garrick and Heather through this time of need.

Thank you for your support, love, and prayers.
