Val has been battling with Leukemia for 5 1/2 years. After many different chemo treatments , adverse side effects and other medicines it has been deemed necessary to move forward with the bone marrow transplant operation. This has been something that we have tried to avoid but it is now looking like a last resort. Due to this situation and the extensive stay at University of Maryland, her husband and daughter and son will be making many trips to and from.
Due to the expenses incurred over the last 5+ years with her condition, this upcoming operation is going to accumulate a phenomenal amount of medical expenses in the form of copays, hospital stays, parking for the caregivers, travel expenses for the caregivers, and her outpatient transportation once the procedure is complete.
