It is will great sadness, that
Tony lost his battle with leukemia on February 25th, 2016.
Our deepest sympathies to Cindy and their family.
Tony is the husband of our long time ShareaCard moderator,
Cindy. Upon an early retirement, Cindy and Tony sold their
home and ventured South.
They hadn't been gone long when Tony had some routine
testing and Leukemia was discovered. It's been a whirlwind of
events ever since :( Tony needed a bone marrow transplant. His
brother and sister were tested to see if they were a match,
but they were not.
On September 14th, Tony will receive the wonderful gift of
a bone marrow transplant from an anonymous donor!
Cindy and Tony are referring to this has his 2nd BIRTHDAY!
Tony will undergo a couple days of chemo, then a day of
rest and then the transplant. He will need to be hospitalized
for at least 2 weeks while they see how the transplant will
work. After he is released, he will be required to stay close
to the hospital for a period of three months. They are in the
process of relocating closer to the hospital for this 3 month
They have hopes of staying at a nearby accommodation but
there are only 11 rooms available and things aren't looking
promising. Upon his discharge, if there aren't any rooms
available, they will be required to stay at a certain hotel
that has been pre-approved with a special air circulation
system for transplant patients. They've been advised that this
hotel costs between $3,000-$4,000 a MONTH! Insurance will not
cover their stay and finances are becoming a worry for them
both as you can imagine!
Cindy has set up a PAYPAL account to receive
donations to help them thru this transition. If you would like
to contribute, you can see more information
