Penelope was born with and extremely rare bone marrow failure disorder called Diamond Blackfan Anemia. After over 40 blood transfusion, 25 hospitalizations and many complications, we have decided to move forward with a bone marrow transplant.
Our admission date should be September 14th where she'll go through 2 weeks of chemo before getting her new cells. Penelope's mom will be living with her at Seattle Children's Hospital and the Ronald McDonald house for a minimum of 3 months. During this time we except to have significant medical expenses and unpaid time off for both Penelope's mom and dad.
We are incredibly grateful for your contributions!
