Pat's Angel Fund!The funds will be used to pay for medical cost & related expenses not covered by insurance.

The family of Pat Martin are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against Acute Leukemia.

Pat was diagnosed with MDS- Myelodysplastic Syndromes in August 2011.She was not given hope but instead given a short lifespan with some treatment that only promised to prolong her life a short amount of time.Suzy & Sherry, her daughters, decided there had to be other options available & that is when they found out there was hope at not only treatment for her Bone Marrow but a chance to be in remission and possibly to completely remove the disease at a Hospital in Houston called MD Anderson.

Pat's heart was elated that she might be blessed at the age of sixty six to possibly have her life expanded a great amount and the hope of one day living without pain in her bones.Pat has spent her life as a homemaker and a care giver to anyone that needed her help.She has now found herself alone,with limited funds and in need of help.She believes with all of her heart that God is in the center of her healing and her body will be completely renewed.

When we arrived on Thursday,April 26,2012 at MD Anderson to begin treatment but instead the world fell beneath her feet as she was rushed to the ICU with her blood pressure reading 49/28, a fever, dehydrated, an infection in her body and the horrible news that her MDS had now turned into to Acute Leukemia.The next 24 hrs was a miracle, she fought her way back and is now been moved into a regular room. But she still has a battle no matter how promising in front of her.

Treatment consist of housing,food, travel, medicine,medical expenses. That is about $5,000 a month and stem cell transplant that can very well remove the disease from her bones is approx. triple
the cost because we will be here 100 days. So we are looking at 150 to 200 days in Houston.

Pat has found it humbling to ask for help in the means of money for treatment,caregivers time and the funds to get caregivers to Houston to help take care of her. Pat is in the battle of her life right now and the mounting medical bills are a worry we would like to take away from her. We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it! Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.
