The first thing I wonder when receiving a request for a charity donation is “what is the money going to?” So I’m gonna go ahead and guess that many of you are wondering the same thing as I am begging you for donations…
Here is what your donation dollars can do!
How Your Donation Can Help
$50 will register 1 person to be a bone marrow donor.
$75 will provide HLA (bone marrow) typing for a family member of a patient with leukemia.
$100 will pay for the cost of 4 patient’s chemotherapy drug prescription co-payments.
$300 will train 25 peer volunteers who can provide emotional support to newly diagnosed patients.
$500 will provide patient aid to a person with Leukemia or a related cancer for a year.
$1000 allows patients to meet with health care specialists to design and discuss their disease, treatment plan and prepare them with the info they will need during the treatment process. $2000 provides patients with a one month supply of Gleevec.
Dude, having a blood/lymphatic cancer is NOT cheap. Soooo go on, donate to my race. Help a fellow patient out; you know you want to!
