Laura Santiago's Medical Fund
Organized by: Laura Santiago
Hi, A longtime family friend of mine, Laura, was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic Leukemia in March 2014. She had several sessions of chemotherapy and radiation, then in remission for two months. After a biopsy, they had found that the cancer had come back before she was able to receive transplantation. Laura then had a treatment called CAR T CELLS, specifically meant to kill leukemia cells. On November 25, 2014, she had the transplantation and was in slow recovery. However, biopsy results from this past Tuesday (May 26th) showed that the Leukemia had returned. They have found new cells in the bone marrow, so she will start treatment once again. My friend has 2 precious girls, 5 and 7 years, and married for almost nine years. Financially and emotionally, Laura’s family has been through the ringer. I would like to show my support for them by raising money to make these treatments less of a cost burden on their family. Seeing a loved one suffering with such an awful disease is tragic. Please help me show her that she is loved and supported in her constant battle against cancer! Thank you hope you donate!
