Golf Fore Mike - Aplastic Anemia Fundraiser
On June 3rd of this year, Mike was diagnosed with aplastic anemia. It is a rare autoimmune disease and there is no known cause. As many of you know, Mike is an extremely healthy, athletic guy so this has come as quite a shock. The only cure for this disease is a bone marrow transplant. Mike had the bone marrow transplant on September 12th.
He was admitted to MGH on 9/7 for 4 days of chemo/radiation to prepare for the transplant. The "early recovery" period for the transplant is 100 days and he will be in the hospital for 30-100 days post-transplant.
Although they do have health insurance, there will be significant uncovered out-of-pocket expenses. Bills related to the search for a matching bone marrow transplant donor, weekly visits to MGH in Boston for blood transfusions, the regime to keep Mike healthy, the uncovered medications, the donor cost for the transplant and the long recovery time both in and out of the hospital will add up quickly.
