My husband, our son and I have been living in a daily nightmare, leukemia is that nightmare, and that nightmare is our reality. I came across Jeffrey's Voice trying to find an organization dedicated to curing this terrible disease. Jeffrey's voice has offered my family knowledge, hope, love and most of all support. Nancy Horne, who started this organization drove several hours to visit my husband after we received the heart breaking news that my husband had relapsed for the fourth time at the young age of 27. He has fought this demon for 9 long, hard years. Mrs. Horne has reminded us Daily, several times a day that there are people in this world that are dedicated to this terrible disease that seemed to go unnoticed. When my husband was told there was no other treatments available for him here is Georgia Mrs. Horne and Jeffrey's Voice put us in contact with individuals at MD Anderson hospital in Houston, Tx where we traveled alone, frightened and desperate. Jeffrey's voice made certain that we were not alone however, we received help and support from other people that are involved with Jeffrey's Voice. We were visited by strangers who offered their help and advice. I personally have never traveled, never been away from home and never ventured into the unknown on my own, I was terrified to face this ordeal and to be so far from home but Jeffrey's Voice gave me peace and comfort. This organization has had an enormous and positive impact on my husband and me. I know with out any doubt that the members and volunteers of Jeffrey's Voice will continue to help others who live the daily nightmare of leukemia. I have been so very blessed to have found an organization that offers knowledge, hope, love and support and I could never express my sincere appreciation.
