Joleen, a thirty-year-old mother of a three-year-old, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in March 2014. Joleen was working as a voice service manager for six years until she received her diagnosis. This was the first time she was out of work and unable to assist with paying bills. Joleen was first hospitalized for eighty-two days consecutively and underwent two surgeries until her treatment team was able to find a chemotherapy regiment that worked. She has spent very little time out of the hospital, due to the effects of chemotherapy. According to Joleenâ€™s doctors, her only means for survival is through an allogeneic stem cell transplant. Joleen is collaborating with The Bone Marrow Foundation in order to help offset the costs of medical expenses, childcare, and living expenses. With your help, this worry can be alleviated while she is in the midst of recovery.
