Lifeline Project Profiles: Margaret, Juwuan, and Monica

Meet Margaret, Juwuan, and Monica. They are the latest Lifeline Project participants to be profiled in our ongoing series highlighting the needs of transplant patients.


Lifeline Participant Margaret


Margaret, a devoted wife and mother, was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) in September 2011. She has been enduring chemotherapy, blood transfusions, IV therapies, and out-of-state travel in order to receive treatment. Margaret is now preparing for a stem cell transplant, but needs assistance with the cost of the donor search process and other related medical expenses. Any support would be greatly appreciated by Margaret and her family.

Lifeline Participant Juwuan



Juwuan, the youngest boy of seven siblings, is ten years old and preparing for a bone marrow transplant. In November of 2011, he was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and since then, he has been hospitalized continuously. As a fifth grade, honor roll student, Juwuan’s favorite subjects are math and science. He also enjoys playing football and competing in wrestling tournaments. Aside from school and sports, he loves to spend time with his family, friends, and two dogs, Lady and Solo. Juwuan and his family would benefit from financial assistance for his medical expenses so that they can focus on getting him healthy and back to his favorite activities.

Lifeline Participant Monica



Monica is a 30 year old single mother of a beautiful nine year old daughter. She was first diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in February 2011 and was treated with six rounds of chemotherapy. In July, she found out the cancer had returned and now she must undergo another course of chemotherapy in preparation for a bone marrow transplant. Monica, who has always worked hard to provide for her daughter, is finding it very difficult to take care of their needs during her lengthy treatment. She would greatly benefit from any donations that could be made to help with their increasing expenses.
