Ann bailey support to beat cancer
Organized by: Robert Koerner
Ann was diagnosed with an aggresive and fast moving form of leukemia (AML FLT3/ITD) in March of this year. Immediately following the diagnosis, she was admitted in Hospital for 6 weeks of treatment to kill the leukemia cells and prepare her body for a bone marrow/stem cell transplant that needs to be done as soon as possible. She has just undergone another round of treatment, and will have to do this every 5 weeks until the transplant is done. In between these treatments, Ann is at home but has to go to the hospital twice a week for blood tests, checkups and transfusions.The Hospital is currently looking for a bone marrow donor. When one is identified, Ann will have to go to a hospital in another state for the transplant, because the current hospital has a long waiting list and could not perform it for at least 8 months.She needs the transplant ASAP.Since Ann's diagnosis, many people have asked how they can help. Here is your chance to help. Friends and family are organizing this campaign to help ease the financial burden that Ann and family are facing. I’m sure many of us have benefited from Ann’s generosity over the years.She is always willing to lend a hand, and have contributed help to others many times. Please help her through this difficult time - all of us working together can help to ease her worries.
