This is Morgans bone marrow transplant fun. All funds raised will be used towards medical costs and related expenses not covered!

This site is set up to help Morgan Jacobs with the medical expenses she cannot afford, including lodging after transplant. Morgan was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia on September 2010. This Leukemia is a chronic form that she would have to live with for the rest of her life.

She struggled through different chemo’s as in hydrea, Gleevec, Tasigna and Sprycel over the last year and a half. Each chemo gave horrible side effect from extreme fatigue, muscle cramps, burning muscles, massive migraines, hair loss, joint pain and much more! She has battled her way through it all with a good attitude, strong will and great heart! Never losing her smile and spirit! Per not responding to any treatments she was referred to a bone marrow transplant doctor and between him and his colleges they have decided the best treatment for Morgan will be to have a transplant!

They tested her family and sadly no one was a match but was informed that there were matches on the national donor website. They are currently getting her donor set up and preparing the process to begin the transplant.

Morgan has lived on her own since she was 18 years old and always been very independent, never been the girl to ask for help. I'm making this site in her honor to show her it's okay to ask for help when you can't afford it. The stress of paying for lodging after she is released from the hospital for 100 days has weighted heavy on her heart; and also the medical bills plus her normal bills. She has worked for PNC bank for going on 3 years and currently not able to work.

Even though she is going through all of this and struggling herself she has still never asked for help and has even still been raising money for Relay for Life so others don't have to go through all the stuff she did. She is still helping to fight for a cure! It takes a pure heart to put yourself aside even when hurting and still strive for others. So this is our way of paying it forward to Morgan!

If you are able to donate anything to her fundraiser we would appreciate it. All proceeds will go straight to her so she can pay her bills and make it through.

Thank You
Friends of our Loved Morgan
