Nice quote

Help for a Maine Mom with leukemia

I'm sharing this because it affects a caring and loving homeschooling Maine mom.  - Laurie
I have been diagnosed with leukemia for the second time in three years;
this time I require a bone marrow transplant. This treatment is incredibly
disruptive and time-consuming; in addition to the two rounds of in patient
chemotherapy I have already had, I will be in Boston for about a month and
then on immune-suppressive drugs for a year. During the recovery, I am not
supposed to go out without a mask and gloves, as I will be highly
susceptible to illness and will not have a fully functioning immune system.

Some friends have set up a fundraiser for us to help defray the costs of
care and lost wages-my husband has already missed more than two months of
work this year. If you are interested in contributing or just sharing the
link, we would be very grateful.

Thank you,
