Phillip Avila



Phillip has been married for 25 years. He has 4 children and 2 grandchildren. While on the job as a construction worker in April 2011, Phillip hurt his back. After going to the doctor’s for the injury, Phillip was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Since his diagnosis, Phillip has endured three rounds of chemotherapy. He is getting close enough to remission for a bone marrow transplant and is expecting to get his transplant in January 2015. While preparing for transplant is stressful, Phillip says he is looking forward to this chance to get his life back.

Phillip is in need of financial assistance in order to pay housing and transportation costs related to his transplant. He has decided to team up with The Bone Marrow Foundation in order to raise One to One Funds to go towards these expenses. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
