Linda's fight against Leukemia

Linda Yorger was diagnosed, at the age of 68 with AML (Acute Myloid Leukemia) on August 4, 2014.  During this time, she underwent several rounds of high dose chemotheraphy which eventually put her into remission.  However, on July 9, 2015 the leukemia had returned and her doctors recommended a bone marrow transplant.  She underwent more chemotherapy prior to having the bone marrow transplant.  On September 17, 2015, she received a donors bone marrow, which went well and she was once again back in remission.  On March 17, 2016, her blood tests showed some of her own cells present and the doctors were very concerned and scheduled a bone marrow biopsy to be done on March 21, 2016.  The bone marrow biopsy showed that the leukemia cells were back.  The only option to save her life is to undergo more chemotherapy and to have a lymphocyte transfusion.  Unfortnately, insurance will not cover the lymphocyte transfusion and we are asking for your prayers first but any donation that you are willing to make would be much appreciated as the first payment of $6800 is due in 14 days (just prior to her first transfusion of lymphocytes).  The remainder amount will be due after that time.     

She and her family would be eternally grateful for your support!
