Donna, Before the Diagnosis

Donna is a 36 year old mother of two who was recently diagnosed with an agressive form of Leukemia - Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  Her treatment consists of chemotherapy, bone marrow biopsies, invasive tests, and a bone marrow transplant. We are raising funds to help with her medical expenses and the life-saving bone marrow transplant she must have in order to survive.

"Donnabird", as she is lovingly nicknamed, was literally "feeling a little tired" one day and was told of a leukemia that would kill her the next.  She was immediately put through a battery of tests, endured invasive procedures and started on chemotherapy. She has tackled vomiting, weight loss, hair loss, fatigue, significant pain, setbacks, infections, fevers and separation from her husband and kids.  The tests and never-ending "pokes" have taken their toll but Donna pushed through each day the only way she knew how...knowing that she'll do anything to get back to her children.

 

Donna and her husband have dedicated their lives to helping others. She is a surgical scrub tech and has helped thousands of patients make it safely through their surgeries. Donna's husband is a firefighter who has devoted himself to saving the lives of strangers. They are experiencing what many with this diagnosis go through...loss of income, loss of job, loss of benefits, and mounting medical bills.  LET'S GIVE BACK TO THIS FAMILY!! Let's help them with their medical expenses!

We need your help!  Please donate any amount to help cover the cost of this expensive treatment.  You will be helping to save a precious life!

Much love and appreciation,

     The Friends and Family of "Donnabird"
