The family and friends of Alex Harjanto are trying to help with medical expenses for his battle against Leukemia.

#####################################
UPDATE 04.30.12
Alex has found two possible donors.
However, the cost of testing and the Bone Marrow transplant itself is very high.
We are closing this fund drive as for now, and will keep praying on what to do. We are stil hopeful!
######################################
Our friend, Alex, was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) M4 on June of 2011. He has finished his third Chemo Therapy treatments and need your help for a Bone Marrow Transplant.

Alex, like many Indonesians, does not have a medical insurance. All three Chemo therapies expenses were raised and paid for by his High School friends and family. We had raised and paid US $60,000 so far for Alex's three chemo therapies.

We need another $40,000 for his Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT). We have collected about $25,000 from our satellite donation site, and we need $15,000 more.

The BMT is crucial so that the cancer cell will not reoccur. Alex was scheduled for an "Autologous" BMT in which the medical staff will use his own blood cell to build healthy cells for the the transplant. Unfortunately his blood cells are not healthy enough. After three weeks in the hospital the doctor has given up. He is home now waiting for a donor match. Please pray for him and continue to donate.

Just to let you know I have known him since the kindergarten, so our friendship has a history of over 40+ years. Alex is the most energetic and friendly individual. He remains hopeful throughout his ordeal!! He is a husband and a father of three. The oldest son is in college, the daughter is in 11th grade of High School, and the youngest son is in 4th grade.
The family has no other income. His two younger children were living with relatives while he was in treatment. His wife stayed with him during the hospital stay in Malaysia. Just recently they were united with their children after spending a lot of time in the hospital in Malaysia.

We, friends and family of Alex, are spread all over the world from Europe, Asia, Middle East, Indonesia, and here in the States. Please help us with these two goals:
a) We seek donations from individuals such as yourself
b) Please help spread the word. The more people hear this request the better.
Please click "promote" on this page if you have a Facebook account, and click "share" when you are prompted to do so by GF website.

Thanks for your help. God bless you.
