Vanessa's Journey with APL

As many of you know, Vanessa, has been diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APL). We are blessed to live near Columbus, Ohio and The Ohio State University (The James) which is where she is being cared for. But with that, of course, comes lots of medical expenses!  

Vanessa has been in great spirits and is ready to fight this disease!! But she casually mentioned “I don’t even want to think about the medical bills” ... so our goal is to make sure she doesn’t have to!  

We did a little research and it sounds like if we're able to raise $15,000 we can take care of her medical bills for both 2020 and 2021, since her treatment will cross over both years. Anything raised in addition will be used to spoil her by paying off her student loans, which she has been working hard to do :)

Thank you in advance for your support, but most of all for your thoughts and prayers for her recovery! Vanessa is very loved!
