I was diagnosed with Acute Meyloid Leukemia in October 2014. The disease was pushed in remission. I continued with treatment through Feburary 2015 and the disease relapsed in November 2015. The cure is a Bone Marrow Transplant. I found out on December 23rd that my sister(Ginny) is my match. There is only a 1 in 4 chance that a sibling will be a match. She is my cure. I am scheduled to have the transplant late January or early February. This journey is going to be very expensive. This is why I'm reaching out. My transplant will be in a Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Fl which is two hours from my home. I will be hospitalized for 30 days and will need to reside within 15 min. of the hospital for two months following transplant. I will need friends and family to stay with me as caretakers during that time. My sister-my donor needs to come to Florida from Maryland twice. The funds raised will pay for travel expenses, lodging expenses, caretaker expenses and missed wages. We have been battling this for more than a year and our piggy banks are hurting. Any support you can provide will be appreciated. God Bless.
