Patient Aid Impact Stories
“When our daughter, Katie, was diagnosed with leukemia for the second time, our family had not quite recovered financially from her first battle. The financial aid that we received from Leukemia Texas was such a blessing! It helped to lessen our financial worries and allowed us to focus our energy into helping Katie win her battle! We are so grateful!” – Jessica & Roy (Katie’s Parents)

“Thank you for the check for $1,250 you gave me to cover my patient expenses… Leukemia has been a nightmare, but at the same time it has been a blessing. It has given me a perspective I might not otherwise have. Thank you so much for being a part of my recovery and treatment. With help and prayers from you and others, I will continue my fight as long as the Good Lord allows me.” – Gerard N. (Patient Aid Recipient)

Kathy, Patient Aid Recipient
“I received the check in the mail and I wanted to take time out to thank you and your organization for this wonderful gift. I have been in financial straits since I lost my job but this will help take off some of the pressure. Thank you so much.” -Kathy Tidwell
Linda, Patient Aid Recipient
What a surprise and tremendous blessing it was to receive the generous financial gift from Leukemia Texas Patient Aid Program! As an ALL patient, in line to receive a bone marrow transplant, we are seeing our medical bills mount. Our income was already stretched to the max, prior to leukemia, but we knew that God would provide for us through this health crisis. Our prayers were answered when we received your letter and enclosed check! Thank you for the tremendous help that you offer to leukemia patients throughout Texas. I pray we will one day be on the donor end to help you continue your good work. Thanks also to the person who so kindly knits the caps! It will be used often to cool my bald head as the weather cools!
Many blessings – Linda
Lyndall, Patient Aid Recipient
“My name is Lyndall, I am 80 years old. I was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) in 2005. I am blessed to be in remission at this time and I only have to visit my oncologist at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston once a year for now. Still, the financial burden of the price for insurance and the very costly GLEEVEC medication is overwhelming, so this money will help tremendously. Once again I want to thank Leukemia Texas for your most generous grant.” – Lyndall

Archie, Patient Aid Recipient
“I would like to thank you for the $1000 patient aid because it couldn’t have come at a better time. Foundations like yours are so important to patients that are not only dealing with health issue but life’s monthly billing cycle continues on.
I’m so thankful for the kindness you have shown me and my family. Receiving aid from organization like the Leukemia Texas is excellent and you can’t imagine how I feel so blessed right now.
Thanks so much for your support.” – Archie Johnson
Riley, Patient Aid Recipient
“Thank you so much for the financial assistance, it came at just the right time when we needed it.. We are filled with gratitude for organizations like this that help families in need during such a rough battle.” – Sheha (Mother)
Anh, Patient Aid Recipient
“THANK YOU SO MUCH for your generosity in sending me the check. This donation from you will greatly help me pay off some medical bills as well as provide me with funds to purchase the medication for my treatment. I was diagnosed with CLL a few years ago before my grand-daughter was born. While this news greatly saddened our family, this little bundle (her name is Marli) has been a huge reason why I am fighting to beat this cancer. I am currently undergoing chemotherapy and will hopefully undergo a stem cell transplant early next year. This is a very big procedure, but it is very touching to know that my family/friends are with me every step of the way and that there are sweet people like you who are thinking of patients like me.” – Anh
Gabby, Patient Aid Recipient
“As Gabby’s mother, I just really want to thank you for the $1,000 check. It came at a perfect time…I was sitting on my bed trying to think how I was going to pay the light bill, gas bill, plus all of the things Gabby needed for leukemia and had been avoiding the mailbox for days afraid to see all of the bills. I decided to check the mail and came across your letter and could not believe it. Thanks to y’all everything is paid for. Gabriela is doing very well and she is fighting it. We have been through so much and as a single mother it’s hard. Thank y’all for caring for families in need.” – Rachel Rios
Cooper, 5 year old Patient Aid Recipient
“Please accept or deepest gratitude for your organization’s very generous gift to help cover the costs of treatment for our son. This is the second time since Cooper’s diagnosis that Leukemia Texas has provided us with such a gift, and we are more grateful than we can adequately say…The financial generosity of your organization means the world to us, as there have been thousands of dollars in medical bills that we have needed to pay during these past four years. We are extraordinarily grateful for all that Leukemia Texas does for families like ours.” – Ben & Heather Dorr
