I am trying to raise money to help me with the battle against Leukemia. The funds will be used towards medical costs not covered by ins.

I am a proud 37 yr. old mother of three young boys ages 11, 20 and 21. On August 2007 my life was caught by surprise. I suffered a brain hemorrhage. I was only given three days to live. After undergoing treatment and rehabilitation I made a remarkable recovery.
On February 2010, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, My journey to battle this illness had begun. I went through extensive, aggressive chemo treatments and was in remission after three months. Chemo invades every part of your body, the side effects give you a sense that there is no tomorrow.
Sure enough, on March 2011 I relapsed. I continued aggressive chemo. My body could not tolerate the strength of these toxins. I ended up in ICU for 5 days due to lung/sinus infections and a high fever. My blood pressure dropped, heart rate went up and I honestly felt that my life would soon be over. I was fortunate to recover and be back in remission also after 3 months. This experience didn't only change my life, but also that of my family. Having them by my side gave me courage to fight to live.
I am in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant. Waiting on a donor is very challenging, my doctors believe this would be my only option to try to prevent the leukemia from coming back. I need help to cover my ongoing medical treatment to be able to keep me alive. After several hospitalizations lasting more than 1 month at a time, I've been left with an enormous amount of medical bills. Your support will be greatly appreciated. I have faith and I am keeping strong to beat this leukemia.

Thank you all and god bless you. I do believe in miracles and with the help of god I will beat this fight.
