Jim Needs Our Help!
After struggling with unexplained fevers and extreme exhaustion in early 2016, Jim Madson was diagnosed with MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndromes), a bone marrow cancer in which the bone marrow fails to make enough healthy red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. This cancer has left him very weak and forced him to stop working. Since his diagnosis, he has undergone chemotherapy treatments and countless blood and platelet transfusions, all culminating in a bone marrow transplant on October 17, 2016. The cost of a transplant can be overwhelming and he needs our help.
