As most of you know, David was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in August 2017. At the time of diagnosis, he was immediately sent to Sarah Cannon research hospital in Nashville, where he received medical treatment and daily hospital visits for nearly four months.

This cancer forced him to stop all current projects and future job opportunities for the forseeable future. Naturally, this resulted in financial stress for David, and his wife, Carla.

In January of 2018, doctors discovered that David had a more severe and aggressive form of leukemia that has required him to receive treatment at MD Anderson in Houston, TX for the next six months.

Carla has and will continue to stay in Houston with David until he is released to come back home to Nashville. While she has been able to maintain her job at St. B’s, the costs of the illness are beyond income and savings.

This fund has been set up to help offset the stress of living expenses and medical costs not covered by insurance. This includes apartment housing for Carla during the next few months, food/daily needs, and airfare between Houston and Nashville so that she can continue working and see her family.

Thank you for any financial assistance that you are able to give, and please continue to check CaringBridge for all updates regarding David and Carla. God Bless!

So here's my view for twelve+ hours today. Today's fun is the chemo Busulfan which they gave to me first thing this morning. Since then they've been taking vital signs and blood on a regular basis. This will be what they use to create my specialized chemo cocktail for Thursday.
It's all good. Been a relaxed day. We'll probably be out after 10pm then have to be here at 7am for some last bit of lab fun before I'm checked in on Wednesday.

Hello friends and family!
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all those who have given to my parents! My family and I are humbled and in complete disbelief over the fact that we are almost half way to the financial goal we have set of $40,000!! We did not believe we would reach that number so quickly!
We know that that number is not small and it is not an easy amount to ask for.
This journey with cancer has been much longer and more intense than they ever imagined. While my parents have settled into living in Houston for the time being, the financial strain has definitely made a stressful and scary situation even more stressful and scary.
We can not thank you all enough for giving and sharing the go fund me page!
We would love for you all to continue to share the page and we fully trust that God will provide the exact number needed, whatever that ends up being.

I would like to add that we have also loved all the personal notes given! Our family feels so loved and supported!!

Thank you!
Ellie
