This is a fundraiser for Keylun and his family to assist them on their journey to a cure.

Keylun is 5-years old and was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia when he was 2 weeks of age. At two years of age Keylun started receiving blood transfusions due to this diagnoses. Keylun now receives blood transfusions every 3 weeks due to this diagnoses.

Keylun has received over 35 blood transfusions, and as a result now suffers from iron overload. Keylun has been put on the Be The Match registry because he now needs a bone marrow transplant due to the iron overload.

Once he receives a donor he will be in the hospital for approximately 3 months, and the recovery process takes about a year. Once this process is complete Keylun will be cured from sickle cell and will be able to enjoy life as it is meant to be enjoyed.

During that time he needs financial support, which is the reason for this site. The funds donated will be used for transportation, living expenses, medical expenses that are not covered and child care for his siblings and basically anything that comes up while he is going through this process. All help is appreciated.

"God works through us to meet the needs of those around us."

Thank you in advance,

Keylun and Family
