You Can Help Scott Anderson (MYC-84)

by Message From Marie Bates at NIFC |

As many of you know, Scott has been re-diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and was hospitalized in Boise for ten weeks starting January 2011 for chemotherapy and other medical treatment. Scott will require another bone marrow transplant at the Seattle Cancer Center the end of April 2011. Many of the medical expenses in addition to transportation, and relocation expenses are not covered under his insurance.

Many folks have asked "What can I do to help?" So we brainstormed with Scott and talked him into the idea of putting together some kind of fundraiser. So Scott wanted to participate in this effort and decided to use his artwork and other items he owned for a silent auction. So that is what we are doing. For those that live out of town and cannot attend, the flyer has the information on how to donate to the National Transplant Assistance Fund in Scott 's name. Those donations will go to the family to help with these types of medical expenses. Here is the link to NTAF:
www.NTAFund.org and enter Scott Anderson to the "find the patient" box on the home page. Please share this with friends.
