Shevonne "Reddy Redd" Russell is fighting desperately for her life. She has been diagnosed with Myelodysplasia (MDS) = a blood disorder that in which the bone marrow does not function well enough to produce one or more type of bloods cells, including red and white blood cells, as well as platelets. Consequently, her bone marrow cannot produce enough cells to keep up with the number of cells removed by the spleen, liver, and other organs. As a result the number of cells in her body are reduced, increasing the risk of bleeding, infection, and problems related to anemia. In order to combat and overcome this condition, Shevonne must have a bone marrow transplant in order to survive. The doctor have estimated that she may not make it another full year with us unless she has a transplant.

Any and all of the funds that we raise for her will be dedicated to helping her live a long and healthy life.

We need as much help we can get with her medical expenses. There are many extra expenses that her medical insurance will not cover. Out of pocket expenses include many of her prescriptions, donor screenings, blood transfusions (which are becoming more and more frequent each week), and the list goes on. Without any other help the things she needs to have done to get well will not happen.

Shevonne is a college student and an aspiring music producer. She has always been very outgoing and kind hearted. She is quick to extend a helping hand to anyone in need with no questions asked and with no conditions attached. She loves and adores her two sisters and brothers unconditionally and has no problems showing them daily.

As her mother, I feel very confident in saying that she is my best friend and she has been an inspirtion for me in my time of need. I can't imagine my life without her. We are all blessed to have her in our lives and we are reaching out from every angle and asking that everyone find it in their hearts to help us save her.
