Anthony's Medical Fund

My son Anthony has been diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukemia, or AML, is a disorder involving myeloid stem cells. Normally, myeloid stem cells can self-renew and mature into red blood cells (to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the body’s tissues), white blood cells (to fight infections) and platelets (to stop bleeding).

In patients with AML, the myeloid stem cells behave abnormally and do not transform into mature blood cells, or they transform into irregular blood cells that do not function normally. As abnormal cells build up in the bone marrow and bloodstream, the patient may experience anemia, susceptibility to infections and bleeding that does not clot due to the lack of functional red blood cells, white blood cells and/or platelets.

They will start his chemo treatment tomorrow.  Anthony is at UC Davis and will be here for at least 4-6 weeks. 
He can use some help with his medical bills and deductibles.
