LTX Spotlight Story

I was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) in March 2021. My life completely stopped, and I have been in treatment and in and out of the hospital for the last couple of years. 

In the fall of 2021, I went into remission, but unfortunately relapsed in February 2022 and needed more treatment and hospital stays to get me back into remission. I traveled to MDA in Houston for a bone marrow transplant in July 2022. I stayed in Houston until November that year and thankfully got to come home just before Thanksgiving. 

Since the transplant, I have been receiving maintenance chemo and have been focusing on my healing and recovery. I recently received good news that I am cancer free, and I was able to stop all chemo entirely. I have made really great progress since a year ago! 

The financial gift from LTX was such an encouragement and lifted my spirits during a much-needed time. You all have made a positive impact in my life, and I am so thankful for your time, resources, and support. They have been a great blessing to me!
