Lifeline Fund


Kevin, a husband and father, was diagnosed in December of 2014 with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). He has been undergoing chemotherapy and evaluation since two days after receiving his diagnosis. It was explained to Kevin and his family that a bone marrow transplant is a must and will likely occur in February 2015. Kevin, his wife, and two children live approximately thirty miles from their treatment facility. He is the primary provider for his family and his job has been frozen for him; however, he will not be reinstated until he can be out of the hospital consistently and able to perform his duties as a sales manager. This will not occur until Kevin is post-transplant, which could be as long as three months or more. Shelley, his wife, receives an income contingent upon hours worked and it has significantly decreased due to taking care of their children and being at Kevin’s side. For Kevin and his family, there is a big need for living expenses, supplemental costs of medical expenses that extend beyond insurance coverage, and travel expenses. Your generosity will directly support Kevin and his family during this time!

The Bone Marrow and Cancer Foundation relies 100% on private donations. Your generous Lifeline Fund donation will make a significant difference in the lives of patients like Kevin.
