Jaren Robinson's Cancer Fight

Organized by: Shauna Robinson

THE STORY:

Jaren Robinson, my husband and father of four, was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) on March 5th, 2015. During the past year-and-a-half, the doctors have worked with him to get the CML under control with medication. After four different types of pills were proven unsuccessful, a second bone marrow biopsy was taken. The biopsy indicated that the CML was moving from a chronic phase to accelerated phase. This meant a stem cell transplant was necessary in order to save his life. Family members were tested as potential donors and his sister was found to be an exact DNA match! On August 8, 2016, he was admitted to the hospital. He received chemotherapy treatments to get rid of the cancer and had a stem cell transplant from his sister. Because of the nature of a stem cell transplant, his immune system is not strong enough to be in environments that have dust, mold, mildew, etc. Jaren will be out of work for at least one year. Several people have already been helping the family with finances, but some home repairs will be needed in order to provide a safe environment for Jaren to return home. For example, the carpet needs to be replaced with flooring that can maintained by scrubbing clean. Also, while some walls will need only cleaning, other walls will need to be painted. If there are enough funds it would be nice to purchase a leather couch or chair that can be kept clean by wiping. This would provide a comfortable, safe piece of furniture that Jaren can relax on as he is recuperating over the next year. Our family is unable to come up with enough money to cover these costs. Jaren is in the recovery phase of his treatment. He may be able to return home by the end of September so we don't have much time to complete this project. Please help us fix our home so that it can be safe for him to return to our family.
