Deputy Barbara McMullen, diagnosed with a rare, aggressive cancer will need help covering expenses involved in her extensive treatment.

Barb, Justin and Brandon wish to Thank everyone for your generous support!! Most Gratefully Yours, John Smith

Barb has been diagnosed with a rare, aggressive cancer- Peripheral T Cell Lymphoma (PTCL), a malignant cancer of the white blood T cells that can grow in any part of the body. T-cell Lymphoma is a rare disease in which T Lymphocyte cells become cancerous. These Lymphomas account for between 10 percent and 15 percent of all cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the United States (approximately 5,000 to 6,000 cases) a year.

Barb is currently receiving chemotherapy at AMCH in conjunction with Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. After all chemotherapy treatments are completed she will be required to travel to Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and be hospitalized for 3 and a half weeks to undergo aggressive chemotherapy treatments and stem cell transplantation. This should occur at the end of December or beginning of January. 

Barb, who has spent the better part of her adult life helping others, will need help covering expenses involved in her treatment, including travel, co-pays, medications and most importantly having her two sons, Justin and Brandon with her while undergoing treatment in Boston.

Your thoughts, prayers and contributions will be a blessing as she embarks on her journey from treatment to recovery. 'No One Fights Alone'

Thank You.
