Kelly is battling Leukemia. Funds will be used by Kelly and her family for medical & related expenses uncovered by insurance.

Kelly Cormier is fighting Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia(APML). Kelly is a wife to husband & firefighter Greg, and a mom to daughters Shannon & Erin. She is currently at Smilow Cancer Hospital @ Yale New Haven Hospital, where she will remain for the next 20-30 days.

Complicating this anticipated year long treatment program for the newly diagnosed Leukemia, Kelly also suffers from Multiple Sclerosis.

Although Kelly has Insurance coverage, we anticipate the costs of the current admission to total $250,000 ... and the cost of the full years treament to be close to $400,000. We know that a percentage will not be covered under insurance. In addition, Kelly will require multiple treatment rounds. Some will necessitate travelling 100 miles round trip 5 days per week.

Many people accross the country have asked what they can do to help. This is one thing that will help Kelly and her family tremendously. This effort is organized by Kelly's dad, Bill Mitchell. Kelly & her family were only informed about this campaign after it was created.

Thank you for taking the time to read about Kelly's Battle ! We appreciate your support more than you know. Please pass this on to as many people as you know, paste on your Facebook page etc etc. With enough exposure, I am sure we will reach our goal !!
