They will give him 1 week of intense chemo, followed by a draining of his immune system and replacing it with a new one. He will be hospitalized for 30 days after the transplant with around the clock supervision. Then, 100 (or more) days after that, he will have to have 24 hour care at home. The recovery time for a procedure like this is about 9-12 months.
My dad will be out of work for an entire year, leaving them with only one income. As most of you know, I also have a 12 year old brother (Zander) with a genetic disorder called osteogenesis imperfecta. This disease gives him brittle bones, which he unfortunately breaks often. With all of life’s financial demands, as well as my dad and Zander’s medical bills, this GoFundMe would help them tremendously with some of the lost income for the year he can’t work. It will also help my dad get the 24 hour care he needs following the transplant.
Where we stand now: We are in the search of a donor that is my dad’s perfect match! We are hoping to start this process before the end of the year.
Please keep our family in your prayers!
