Tony White - Leukemia Fund
My name is Tony White, and I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia M5 in September 2018. The only risk factor I had was exposure to benzene and radiation at work. I played basketball for UT from 1983-1987. The leukemia completely changed my life, and I have not been able to work since my diagnosis. I had two rounds of 30-day inpatient chemo, which put my cancer in remission, but my doctor says that the type of cancer I have will evolve and come back stronger if I only continue to take maintenance chemo, and ultimately take my life from me unless I have a bone marrow transplant. I have already been to Nashville for preliminary testing. I will have chemo again soon, and then in 4-6 weeks the bone marrow transplant. Anything you can donate to help me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, and may Christ bless you!+ Read More
I came home from the hospital late Thursday evening, and go back into the hospital on Monday for another round of maintenance chemo. I am grateful and humbled by the generous outpouring of support. The compassion and encouragement from the VOLNation, work, and all the way from Greece is truly a blessing. God bless you, and thank you all!
