It is our honor to share with you a few examples of the profound impact of the Yay 4 Life! Cancer Patient Assistance Fund:
Ms. TD is a young woman in her early forties who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in 2012. She underwent a stem cell transplant in 2013, which unfortunately failed, and has been receiving treatment for AML since late 2013. Ms. TD has two teenage daughters and is struggling to pay for medications, rent, etc. The Yay 4 Life! grant helped her to pay for her medication co-pays.
The list of people who benefit from the support from Yay 4 Life! is far greater than the example provided above. Each patient has a unique story and experiences individual hardships, but all are positively impacted by the giving support of Yay 4 Life! Please accept our profound thank you for choosing to help patients and their families in such a significant manner.
With my thanks and best wishes, C. Del Paggio, Houston Methodist Hospital Foundation
