Wishes for Will is being setup to help Will and his family with his medical and related expenses during his battle with Leukemia.

Hello, My name is Liz and my one and only brother Will was diagnosed with Leukemia in April 2012. The news has been unexpected, and unbearable. If theres ever a time in your life when you feel full of unanswered questions and emotions, this would be it!! My brother is 32 years old, he's married and they have 4 children altogether. He has been unable to work due to his condition leaving his wife to take on the financial responsiblity all by herself. He went in for his first chemotherapy session on Good Friday, and the journey began. Unfortunately for Will the Chemo, has not given back the results we all hoped for, HIs blood levels continue to decrease and at this point the Doctors have informed him that he will need a bone marrow transplant. We are 4 siblings in the family, We all went and got tested, including my parents, to see if any of us were a match. Only 35% of patients who need a bone marrow transplant will ever find a match within one of their siblings, So he got lucky!! According to the Doctors, I am the match for his transplant!! I have been feeling very emotional, I'm very happy that he has this opportunity and that I can be a part of that. I feel honored to be able to help him out especially now because time is of the essence. We are going through financial difficulties, but We are maintaining our strength, our faith,and a postive outlook. I would like to ask for your help, your prayers, and your support. Any and all funds raised will go to medical costs, traveling expenses, and whatever bills he may have incurred or are in default. I live about an hour and half away from where the transplant will take place, I will also have to do traveling back and forth for this journey, I'm also a single mother trying to finish my Dental Radiology class, so as you can imajine its very hard on all of us. I want to thank everyone in advance for taking the time to read our story, We are eternally gratefully for whatever comes our way, whether its financially, a prayer or support. My wish is to see my brother happy, healthy and going back to his normal everyday life. I have faith in the Lord that everything will be ok and in him I leave this journey, I know he will lead us to where we need to be.
