My sister, Kathy Bullman Murphy, has been diagnosed with myelofibrosis, a rare form of bone marrow cancer, and now it has also  developed into acute leukemia and is progressing rapidly.  She is a licensed  counselor and has not been able to work for several months and recently closed her office.  She is the widow of James Murphy. 

She will begin treatment in the next week with a trial medication and chemotherapy to treat the acute leukemia.  When this is in remission, she will be treated for the myelofibrosis and   have a bone marrow tranplant.  Even  with all of these treatments, her chance of survival is 33%.  Her medical expenses, even with insurance is going to be very costly.  She is now also unemployed.

She has helped so many people through the years, we believe it is now our place to help her.  If you can help in any way, it will be used wisely and be appreciated more than you will ever know.  Kathy is so very deserving.

Please help us pray for a miracle!  Please make a difference!
