The family and friends of Ray Southerly are raising funds for Stem Cell Transplant expenses not covered by insurance.

Ray was diagnosed with Primary Myelofibrosis with JAK 2 gene abnormality in December 2009. There is no known treatment at this time for Myelofibrosis. This type of blood cancer has developed quickly and in January 2012 Ray found out that the disease has progressed to Leukemia. Ray’s prognosis is 2-3 years unless he obtains a Stem Cell Transplant for cure. Ray is now in the process of searching for a Stem Cell donor. The insurance will cover some of the expenses but not all.
The nearest center for Stem Cell Transplant is Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) eighty miles from home. Ray and his family will have to relocate to Seattle for a minimum of four months. The SCCA will not go forward with transplant if they do not relocate closer to the facility. None of the housing expenses, co-pays or deductibles will be paid by his insurance.
The financial burden on fighting cancer is huge. Any donations you make will be used for expenses only related to Ray’s cancer treatment. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help in this time of need.
