We are asking for your help!
Here is Jaymie’s amazing story:
“9 years ago, my doctor gave me nine months to live. My name is Jaymie Martinez. I am a cancer survivor. When I was 23 years old, I was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia. I went through 5 rounds of high dose chemotherapy and 3 days straight of full body radiation. Each round came with its own set of horrible side effects. I was blind for 3 days. My body was covered in blue and purple rashes. I couldn’t walk, talk, eat or write. My body was so weak, I lost over 30 pounds. I lost all of my hair. I had pneumonia and suffered through depression. But when all else failed my doctors held on to hope. On January 10 2006, I received an experimental stem cell transplant that eventually saved my life. It is thanks to donations like yours that I am still alive today.”
