Help Tyler Kick Cancer's Butt

In May of this year my brother, Tyler Schmeer, was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia, Mild Acute Myeloid Lukemia (https://www.cancer.org/cancer/acute-myeloid-leukemia/about/what-is-aml.html), on the surface of the bone on his left thigh.  The cancer had been present for over two years but had gone undiagnosed.  During this two year period, his body had been fighting the cancer using his own immune system.  This caused him to become ill for extended periods of time.  At the point that the cancer was found, his white blood cell count was extremely low and no longer able to fight the cancer.  
He opted out of Chemotherapy to try to get healthy white blood cells first.
For this reason, his doctors started immediate aggressive white blood cell transfusions.  These transfusions were being done in hopes of avoiding chemotherapy but they aren't working.
A new biopsy has been scheduled to see if he can undergo treatment to cut out the cancer, but chemo may be inevitable. 
The cost of these treatments and the biopsies, plus the side effects, which have not allowed him to work on a regular basis, have caused a huge on-going financial burden.
We are asking for financial support to help cover these treatment costs.  If you have any questions about Tyler's case or want further information, please feel free to contact me!
