Just this past Friday, July 7th 2017, my step-brother Will Thornton was admitted to University hospital in Denver, CO after having severe pain on the left side of his lower torso. After running tests, they discovered his spleen was enlarged, and the cause of the enlargement was due to a diagnosis of chronic leukemia. Yesterday, July 10th 2017, Will had his a bone marrow biopsy procedure to see exactly what phase of leukemia will is dealing with. We should have the results by Wednesday, as well as our next step in treatment.
Throughout the treatment, Will won't be able to work, and will have to stay in Denver, instead of his home with his wife in Palmer Lake, CO. Will also will have extra expenditures in regards to food, gas, and co-pays, as well as keeping up with the normal monthly bills we all are so very familiar with. Being that Will is the primary source of income, this is where we need all of you. If you can spare anything, even the smallest amount to off-set the extra bit of cost incurred we would be very grateful.
Thank you and we will keep you all updated as time moves on.
