In December 2009 my daughter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After seven rounds of chemo therapy, she was not improving and was referred to the City of Hope for a bone marrow transplant. The transplant took and my daughter is now in remission, however the cost of the transplant, pre-transplant chemo and radiation, follow up doctor's visits, and over 35 different medications, along with the previous four hospital stays and chemo treatments was astronomical. NFT assisted us with ways to raise money to pay out of pocket expenses, co-pays, medications not covered by insurance, and transportation and housing. NFT assisted us every step of the way, but supplying a tax free format for donations to be submitted and managed. They also provide hundreds of ideas on campaigns to raise money, and assist with the banners, provide preformatted letters to buisnesses, and private parties, and are their to encourage you along the way. In only five months my team of volunteers has raised over $30,000 to assist my daughter in paying her medical and pharmacy bills.
