Christmas Day, Wayne was taken to the emergency room at Piedmont Hospital, in Rock Hill, SC. Due to his extremely high white cell blood count the doctors transferred Wayne to the Leukemia wing at Carolinas Medical Center, where he found out the next day he had a very aggressive form of leukemia. The doctors started emergency chemo immediately. As I am writing this, he is under going 5 rounds of chemo this week (Jan 5), and in subsequent weeks will have a bone marrow transplant.
Wayne will be out of work for quiet a while, and like others who have medical emergencies, medical expenses, living expenses and bills will be pilling up for Dawn and Wayne.
For those of you who may be reading this because you are a friend of the family, and may not personally know them, Wayne and Dawn also have my wonderful granddaughter Allie, in the home, who is special needs. I mention this because, Dawn cannot just call a neighbor or babysitter to help with Allie, when Dawn needs to be at the hospital. She has a small network that she can work with to help with Allie, which is an extra expense. Dawn and Wayne live in Rock Hill and she travels daily to the hospital.
Anything you can donate is greatly appreciated. A donation of $5, $10 or more, or comparable to a tank of gas, or a week of electricty, everything helps.
Thank you for your consideration. Pray for Wayne's complete recovery!! Prayers for healing provide hope!
