I need a transplant, Bone Marrow

My name is Emmett P. Bruce, a cancer patient, diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells in the bone marrow disorder in 2011.  I have been fighting this battle for the last 7 years while working full time and co parenting a 16 year old daughter.

The cancer has come out of remission and my doctor tells me that my only hope is to receive a Bone Marrow transplant. An appointment has been made for me at the UT Medical Center on April 4, 2018 for a consultation. Also medical exams, this process will take a week. According to the doctor the transplant begins in two weeks. This will require me to travel to Dallas Texas, from my home in Memphis Tenn., secure temporary housing, pay  for the transplant, find a care taker and remain in Texas until I have been cleared to return home. Approximately a month and a half or two. My medical insurance will not cover this cost.

Because of the constant pain and progression of the cancer, I have been unable to work since January. At this point in my life, I humble myself to ask for financial assistance and any help that can be provided.  Please help me my donating anything you can to my GoFundMe account. I want to get back to work and support my daughter as she prepares for college and beyond.

Thank you so much for your help.
