Eight years ago, at age 54, Inita (Faye) suddenly began feeling nauseous and her bones hurt all over. A bone marrow biopsy revealed that she had multiple myeloma. In October 2014, doctors told Faye that she would need a stem cell transplant. After a few months of preparation, she received her transplant on February 4, 2015 at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Fayeâ€™s husband Karl and her son Lee have been her caregivers from the beginning of her transplant journey. This has been an especially difficult time for the family, as Karl is struggling with multiple sclerosis, which he was diagnosed with in 2011. Lee has moved in with Faye and Karl in order to help take care of both of them. Faye and her family are in need of financial assistance for groceries and transportation, as well as co-pays for medical insurance and prescriptions. Any contributions are greatly appreciated.
