Tamara K.

Tammy is a wife and mother of 3 young boys. She was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in September 2014. Her initial treatment included multiple rounds of consolidation chemotherapy, as well as radiation therapy. Unfortunately, Tammy had several recurring colds and sinus infections in early 2016, both of which can be signs of a weakened immune system. Blood tests followed by a bone marrow biopsy indicated that the leukemia had relapsed. Her doctors recommended an allogenic stem cell transplant. Her transplant took place in April of 2016, and her anonymous donor was from Germany. Tammy and her family raised money through our CareLines Fund program to help cover co-pays, prescription drug costs, deductibles, and transportation costs. Tammy also joined the SupportLine program and was connected with another mother of three who had gone through a similar transplant journey years prior.
