It is our honor to share with you a few examples of the profound impact of the Yay 4 Life! Cancer Patient Assistance Fund:
Mr. M.M. is a young man in his late twenties who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in 2013. He has been treated several times at Houston Methodist and eventually had a stem cell transplant in 2014. Given that his donor was his brother, Mr. M.M. was not eligible for some of the transplant financial assistance programs available. Mr. M.M.’s family was able to use a grant from Yay 4 Life! to pay for parking for appointments.
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
