Help Scott Anderson

by chuck sheley |

A "Friends - Helping - Friends" Request Scott Anderson (MYC-84) has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

At this time (Sept. 2007), Scott has been hospitalized in Boise for over nine weeks and has undergone four rounds of chemotherapy. He will require a bone marrow transplant at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance within the month.

Thankfully, Scott's personal health insurance should cover most of the $350,000 in medical expenses. Unfortunately, it does not cover many of their out of state expenses and medical items like: transportation, living expenses near the medical center, donor search fees, and other non-covered hospital/medical costs.

It is expected that these non-covered medical and other miscellaneous expenses will easily exceed $10,000. This is your opportunity to assist the Andersonís during this phase of Scottís treatment and those additional financial burdens certain to come.

In order to help them, a tax-deductible account has been established in Scottís name with the National Transplant Assistance Fund. The NTAF is a nonprofit organization that has been helping the transplant community for over 20 years.

All donations will go directly into an account designated for medical related expenses and are tax deductible. The initial goal is to raise $9,000 to $10,000 to assist the Anderson family for the uncovered medical costs and expenses during the estimated three-month treatment period in Seattle.

This is an opportunity to help a fellow jumper in need. Your contribution in any amount will go a long way in helping the Andersonís through this trying time.
