The family and friends of Charlotte Luann Baxter are uniting to make this birthday her MOST special yet and help in her fight against CLL!

Hello and thanks for stopping by! My mom, Charlotte Luann, retired and thought she'd live the easy life with her 3 grandsons, her 3 children, her sister and family and many friends. However, after several years with a fierce rash and no real answer, Charlotte Luann has been diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, CLL (confirmed through bone marrow samples).
There is a treatment that could potentially lead to a cure which is a Stem Cell Transplant; but this treatment isn't without significant risk. After much deliberation and prayer, my mom has decided to go for CANCER FREE birthdays and do the Mini Allogeneic Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant! The clinic has found a stem cell donor who is a perfect 10/10 match!  She is going to start her Stem Cell Transplant in San Diego this September.
Thankfully, many of the expenses are covered through Medicare, but not all of them. She will need to stay in San Diego for three months during her procedure to ensure the best of chances for success. However, none of the move/rental expense is covered by insurance, nor are many of her medicines that are also crucial to maintaining her health after the procedure. SO, we are writing to ask for your help!
Charlotte Lu Ann's birthday is September 5th and we are hoping to give her this gift! Please consider donating through this website for her birthday. Money raised will help offset the cost of travel, living, and medicines and take her one step closer to CANCER FREE birthdays! Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated. Consider a gift of $66.00 to honor her 66th BIRTHDAY on Sept 5th.
It brings tears to our eyes to think of all of the kindness that has already been shared with my mom during this process. Thank you for considering this request and may love and light come your way :) If you would prefer to mail a check, you may do so in Charlotte's name and send to: Charlotte Baxter c/o Shannell Sedgwick, 609 South Meldrum Street, Fort Collins, CO 80521 If you have any questions or would like to speak to a family member please feel free to call me: Shannell Sedgwick, 949-300-9396
