Help Laura Fight Cancer

Help Laura Fight Cancer

My best friend, Laura was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APL) in June. She has a 98% chance of survival, but it will take several rounds of aggressive chemo therapy that lasts up to two years. Her plans to keep attending law school at Texas Wesleyan are on hold until she is in remission. Laura does not have insurance or a job to provide income. While her biggest concern is getting well, reality has made paying medical and household bills a priority. Although she has applied for social security disability, pending being accepted, monthly compensation will not start until December. Laura's StoryAPL is a cancer of the blood where new cell production is compromised and cells either form with a mutation and/or do not mature; inhibiting the cells ability to do their job. In Laura's case, her red blood cells (which carry oxygen throughout the body) are very low, this attributes to her extreme fatigue and memory loss. Her white blood cells (which fight infections) have been almost non-existent. She has no immune system, so she is susceptible to picking up any bacterial, viral or fungal infections which most of us would not have to worry about. Her platelet and coagulant count have been critically low meaning that any physical activity, however slight, can cause fatal hemorrhaging since her blood cannot clot. Because of this life threatening disease, she was confined to the hospital for over a month. Laura recently got to go home under strict conditions from her doctor, which include not going places with lots of people where germs are easily transferable. She started chemotherapy and with the dreadful side-effects, finding a job to pay bills is impossible.How can we help?Helplaurafight is dedicated to helping raise funds for Laura so she can keep her home and focus on getting 100% cancer free.
