Our neighbor Guy Burk has been diagnosed with Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). He has already been in the hospital for over five weeks.Â Friday he started his second round of chemotherapy because unfortunately the kind they gave him the first time did not work.
We asked if there was anything we could do to help and we were told that Guy has already had 39 blood transfusions and will most likely require many more in the coming weeks. Â We all want to be able to do something to help and giving blood is a simple way for all of us to play a part in his recovery.
You can donate blood in his name, and those units (replacement credits) will be applied to his account. This will help to reduce the amount they have to pay for each of the units of blood that he receives.Â If you are able to donate blood, Guy and his family would GREATLY appreciate it.Â If you have friends that might donate blood, please forward this email to them as well.
You can go to any Carter blood bank, which you can find on their website (www.carterbloodcare.org).
The information you need when donating is the following:
