With undefinable gratitude and humilty, our Ohana is asking for your help in the fight against MDS for our Lovely Koa, Patty Jean Ryrcroft. Patty is a true warrior, as she is not only fighting MDS, but has already once won the battle to Breast Cancer.
In her current battle, she will be residing on the Mainland in California for several months. Her stay there will involve Chemo Therapies and Cell Transplants, in which her son Brendon has been approved as her closest donor match. She will also be undergoing several Blood Transfusions during her treatments. Her supportive care will not only include several weeks of hospital stay at the CITY of HOPE in Duarte, California but also weeks at the City of Hope Village on the campus ground during her recovery.
Brendon is a Husband and Father of two beautiful children. He and his family have unquestionably and willingly chosen to make the necessary sacrifices he has been presented with to help his Mother in her current battle. This will entale an extended stay away from his family and his employment.
Along with Brendon, Patty has two daughters; Ka'iulani and Haunani. Patty has nine grandchildren and they all reside on the island of Maui. With Grace, Faith, Hope, Love and with your help we hope to lessen the financial impact during her several months of leave from her beloved job at Pu'u Kukui School, as well as help with the many medical costs that will be incured during her battle with MDS and lastly, assist her children in travel to come be by her side during her fight.
With all of our Love and Aloha, the Ohana of Patty Jean Rycroft.
KOKUA "Extending loving, sacrificial help to others for their benefit, not for personal gain..."
