Hi my name is Sarah Turner and I am a student at Baylor University! When I was unexpectedly diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in January, my life was turned upside down. I have since been receiving treatment at MD Anderson, and was blessed with a stem cell transplant in June. God has been faithful through it all! He’s provided me with me with wonderful resources and people to support me through this challenging journey. Leukemia Texas has helped me and my family financially and emotionally. Program Manager, Mandy Flaming has been so encouraging by checking up on me periodically, which made me feel seen and cared about. News anchor, Jenny Anchondo, is also a great proponent of the cause and has been encouraging me along the journey. Going through college is difficult enough, but with heavy medical bills, it is almost unimaginable. My supportive twin sister, Natalie, also attends Baylor, so you can see how the family expenses add up. So, I’m forever grateful to all Leukemia Texas does to support people like me!

I joined the board of Leukemia Texas earlier this year, and I have been beyond impressed with the authenticity and incredible compassion you will find within this organization from the top down - inside and out. Patient aid is absolutely the top priority, and so many people are working very hard to help as many Texans as possible who are battling the difficulties that leukemia can create for any family or individual. Leukemia Texas is a first-class organization.

Leukemia Texas is a well run organization that directly impacts patients lives. The events they have historically held are all top notch (and a lot of fun)!

Looking forward to the next Leukemia Ball.

My husband and I both donate and volunteer for this wonderful organization. Leukemia Texas only has 3 paid employees and has large number of volunteers. All funds raised support Patient Aid and Research at leading Texas institutions. All proceeds stay in the state of Texas. We can't say enough good things about the dedicated staff and volunteers of Leukemia Texas.

Leukemia Texas is a fantastic non-profit dedicated to helping families like ours with the devastating costs of cancer treatment. Our daughter is a two-time leukemia survivor and we have been guests at the BeatLeukemiaBall for many years. We've witnessed firsthand the amazing research they support as well as seen stories of countess patients they have sent financial aid to over the years. All funds are raised in Texas for Texas patients. This is an organization well worth your time and financial gifts if you feel inclined to give!

The BEATLEukemia Ball is such a blast every year!!! Checking in online, doing the auctions online, and the auctioneers were a great touch! As was the Whataburger afterparty! I wonder if it would be better to change up the band. I LOVE the Beatles... but same songs, same set every year is kinds boring. I'm looking for something else to dance to. It's just too predictable at this point.

I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in April 2019. I am now over 9 months out from transplant and while there have been bumps in the road, my last biopsy was clear and my body is beginning to heal! I am officially in remission. We are so thankful for all the support we have received along the way from friends and family and organizations like Leukemia Texas. When we first began this journey, we had no insurance and acquired about $800,000 in medical debt. Thanks to God's provision, several financial assistance programs helped erase the majority of that. We are down to about $8,000 in medical debt now, as well as ongoing monthly expenses. We were able to acquire insurance and I qualified for a grant that helped me pay for half my premium, but all of our expenses have increased beyond our income. We are so thankful that Leukemia Texas has been a part of that provision by providing us with grant money that has been essential to helping us make ends meet. We are able to pay our utilities and put food on the table during a time when many aren’t. The generosity of everyone that has donated to Leukemia Texas is appreciated beyond what I can ever put in words. Thank you all for helping my family to survive leukemia!"

Leukemia Texas is an unbelievable organization with dedicated people who are constantly thinking outside of the box to help raise funds and awareness about Leukemia. The events they hold and patient aid they provide is some of the best I've seen in working with non-profits. But the grants they are able to provide through their research program is what really stands out and will hopefully lead to a cure for Leukemia in our lifetime.

Leukemia Texas is part of my family. They were a very significant part of my sons treatment and have remained a part of his future. My family will forever remember the passion and love they showed us. Because of their' many decades of research support, my son has a bright future as a pediatric oncologist. We also had peace of mind on some of the bills because of their patient aid. Every moment of peace helps the treatment. The most incredible part of the relationship is the staff. They made a difference and they do this because of their love for what they do. I could fill ten pages of stories about these wonderful folks. They are a treasure my family will cherish forever.

I'm so impressed with the work of Leukemia Texas! It's been a joy to see the patient aid program in action and the difference that the support makes to the lives of each patient and his or her family. In my short time working with Leukemia Texas I've been fortunate to hear first hand what the support of the patient aid program can do and how it gives hope and inspiration to people when they are at such a vulnerable time. I've worked with several nonprofit groups in the past twenty-five years, and this one has a much more personal touch than others I've seen. It's a big difference in real and tangible ways.

Leukemia Texas is an excellent organization that is very well run and genuinely cares for leukemia patients. I am a leukemia physician and I have seen how monies donated directly go toward improving the outcomes of these patients whether that be to fund critical leukemia research or manage the financial burden patients face when challenged with the costs of cancer treatment. So to advocate for th care of my patients I would encourage you to consider donating to this truly altruistic non-profit.

Leukemia Texas is an outstanding organization!! They were there for my family throughout a leukemia diagnosis, bone marrow transplant and subsequent care. I don't have enough praise to give the staff or their hands-on, educational approach.
