Lifeline Project Profiles: Eunice, Daniel, and Anna

Meet Eunice, Daniel, and Anna. They are the latest Lifeline Project participants to be profiled in our ongoing series highlighting the needs of transplant patients.

Eunice

Lifeline Project Participant: Eunice

Eunice

Last year, Eunice was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, and it has changed her life dramatically. She is no longer able to work and must relocate over two hours away from her husband and two children in order to receive a bone marrow transplant. Eunice’s transplant costs are making it difficult to sustain her family; donations would greatly benefit her ability to cover their medical and living expenses.

Daniel

Daniel

On Daniel’s 25th birthday, he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a type of cancer with a rapid onset and high fatality. Daniel underwent chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant last March. Prior to treatment he had a job and a life he enjoyed; now he is facing a long recovery and increasing expenses. Per doctor’s orders, Daniel should not work for the next two to three years, so any assistance with his medical expenses would be appreciated.

Lifeline Project Participant: Anna

Anna

Anna

Anna, once a vibrant young woman living an active life, was diagnosed with myeloproliferative neoplasm with fibrosis, a serious bone marrow disorder that has since overcome her life. She’s challenged by extreme fatigue and has become reliant on blood transfusions, which prevents her from working full time at the job she loved. Her transplant will only further affect her financial ability to provide for herself. Anna needs assistance with medical and living expenses.
