Angela Cregan Medical Benevolence Fund

Angela Cregan Medical Benevolence Fund
Angela Cregan was a healthy, busy mother of two beautiful daughters and wife to husband, John, when on June 20, 2017, at a routine exam, Angela was diagnosed with Acute leukemia with ambiguous lineage. This type of leukemia does not fall into the more common Acute Myeloid Leukemia--AML or Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia--ALL and is very difficult to treat.  Because of this,  Angela is now facing a bone marrow transplant at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto, California.



Angela's family lives in the Santa Rosa area but she received her chemotherapy at Kaiser Oakland Medical Center because of the medical team's expertise.  Angela was admitted for 17 days in July for the first round of treatment then returned home for treatment on an out-patient basis from Kaiser Santa Rosa.  At that time these treatments were not effective in bringing the leukemia into remission.  Angela was then readmitted to Kaiser Oakland in August for a third round of chemotherapy.



The only hope of survival is to receive a bone marrow transplant.  Thankfully, Angela's sister, Charissa, is a 10 out of 10 match for their bone marrow and Charissa will be travelling to Palo Alto from North Dakota for the transplant.  This process will, however, require Angela and John to find housing in the Palo Alto area and will be separated from their two daughters, Brooke and Lauren.  They will stay near the hospital for 108 days, the first 30 will actually be in the hospital.  This housing is required so Angela can live near the hospital for daily visits back to the hospital for tests.  She will need to be in almost complete isolation and only allowed to go out of the apartment to go to the hospital.  Along with the $185/day expense of the apartment, there will be additional costs of fuel, food and other miscellaneous necessities.  



Thank you so much for prayer, first of all, for Angela and her family and for the transplant to be a complete success.  Also we want to thank you for your interest in assisting the family with this astronomical medical expense.  Galatians 6:2 tells us to "carry each other's burdens".  God Bless you.
