Jerome, a single father of two, was first diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in February 2003. His biggest fear was not being there for his kids, but he did his best to focus on strength instead of worry, and kept busy by volunteering and organizing bone marrow drives. In the fall of 2009 he was told that he would need a bone marrow transplant and he is extremely grateful to his bone marrow donor for giving him a second chance at life. Jeromeâ€™s faith, prayers, and the emotional support from loved ones have helped him through, but he continues to suffer from graft versus host disease (GVHD) and is need of assistance for his mounting medical bills.
