Family and friends of Sharon Cline are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against Multiple Myeloma. Please show your support!

If you have stumbled onto this page, you are likely a good friend or family member of Sharon and Jerry Cline. As you probably know, Sharon is in the fight of her life, battling Multiple Myeloma. The past 6 months have been a roller coaster of ups and downs within a whirlwind of medical appointments, cancer treatments, and kidney dialysis. With God's help, and Sharon's determined spirit, she won the first round of the fight and is deemed to be in remission from the cancer.

The next step in the treatment plan consists of a bone marrow transplant. If successful, this treatment will provide several years of health, and could also provide eligibility for a kidney transplant - eliminating the need for regular blood transfusions and kidney dialysis (the dialysis schedule is currently 3 days per week, 4 hours per visit).

As Sharon's immediate family, we were greatly relieved at the news of the remission. This news gives us great hope that she will eventually resume a normal life and routine, and will have many more years to enjoy with her friends, family, and especially the grandkids :)

Sharon's bone marrow transplant will be starting October 15th. After she is admitted, Sharon will have to receive intense chempo-therapy for several days prior to the actual transplant (scheduled for the 18th). Sharon will be in the ICU for the duration of her stay, and will be required to stay in a hotel in Ann Arbor for the 2 weeks after her discharge. The whole process will take about 4 weeks.

Many people are asking what they can do to help. Your support is greatly needed in several ways. First and foremost, we really appreciate everyones prayers Please, please pray for a successful procedure! In addition, a very practical way you can help is by providing for them financially. The duration of the month in Ann Arbor is going to be costly. We have a goal to raise $5k by the end of October. Every contribution, even a small one, will make a difference, and provide a lot of encouragement to Sharon and Jerry. Lastly, please help spread the word. When we all come together, the burden is light.
