Kirk is 34 years old, born and raised in White County. He was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia back in March. Over the last 7 months he has been on an oral chemo. He has missed 2 months of work throughout since he has been diagnosed. He has had some set backs in the last month where his red blood cell count and platelets were really low. After another bone marrow biopsy, they discovered his current chemo wasn’t allowing his bone marrow to produce the correct amount of red blood cells, resulting in a blood transfusion. He is currently awaiting results from the first transfusion to decide the new plan of attack. He has also received a letter from insurance that any further coverage on his chemo had been denied.
He and his family are currently trying to build our forever home, expecting a baby in November, and just had to deal with his truck just getting stolen and totaled. If you are able to help this family out any at all, every little amount would help.
