The family and friends of Kelly Florie are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against Leukemia. Please show your support!

Hi everyone!
This is a fundraising site to help my mom, Kelly Florie, pay all of the medical bills that she will accrue due to the Bone Marrow Transplant she is about to undergo.

Mom was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) in August 2008. She had 6 rounds of Chemo in 2008 which knocked the disease back for a little while. Slowly, her WBC (white blood cell count) started to
rise, and then double between Dr. appointments, meaning the Leukemia was returning. Her doctors decided she would have 6 more chemo treatments, but stronger treatments this time.

In late Fall 2011, doctors found a marker on her chromosomes that indicated an inability for chemo to put her into remission, the last and only choice was a Bone Marrow Transplant.

A Bone Marrow Transplant will cure her of her CLL and she can go on and lead a normal life after a year or two of recovery. But, the risks are great. The odds are 50/50 that it will be a success, but Mom has a great attitude and outlook and is strong.

She feels wierd about asking people for money, but in this case we really need it, so I'm asking you all. She's got a lot of life left in that short little body of hers. :)

If you can, please donate. I know not everyone can, but if you could help us get the word out and share this on Facebook we would be so grateful. You never know who might be touched by Mom's story. I can't express enough how grateful Mom will be to know she has alot of people out there who really care about her. Thanks everyone!

If you would prefer to mail a check, you may do so in Kelly's name to: Kelly Florie, 506 West First, Pittsburg, KS 66762
