The following letter was sent to our office from a patient who recently received financial assistance from Med City Foundation:
A special thanks to all the donors of Med City Foundation. Your generous grant to us came at a very opportune time, as we were, in addition to medical expenses, trying to find a resource for day to day needs for housing and food, which can be quite a burden. We have been at Mayo Clinic since August 2nd, 2017. In that time, we have had a 10 day break, a 7 day break, and a couple of weekends over the holidays. L.’s journey to bone barrow transplant for Acute Myeloid Leukemia began with day 0 being January 19th 2018. She had an unrelated international donor, so recovery is typically 100 days with many follow up appointments in the future. We are blessed to have an organization like yours to lend a helping hand. We are from Iowa, and hope to be home for Memorial Day.
Thank you so much for your support!
-M.Z., Whitemore Iowa
