Please help Tom Gittens as he battles Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and Myelodysplastic Syndrome. . Tom was diagnosed with Leukemia in May of 2011, and in February of 2012 he was then diagnosed with MDS. He has been told that finding a donor for a Bone Marrow Transplant soon is crucial. Tom found a “perfect match”, which was his sister that lives in Seattle, they had to do numerous tests and it’s been determined that they both are healthy enough to do the transplant. He now needs to go through chemotherapy to help reduce some of the cancer cells prior to the transplant.
Tom’s friends and family are holding a benefit on Saturday, August 11th starting at 2pm at the Brownsville Community Center.
There will be live music, a live auction, raffles, fish bowl raffles, children’s activities, food, and much more!
Any questions or donations: Tomsjourney@live.com, or call Danielle at 507-459-2711
