Southwest Stem Cell Transplant Fund
Las Vegas, NV
Family and friends of Pamela Bullock are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation of her own adult stem cells.
Pam lived in Southern California all of her life, working in the entertainment field and the mortgage industry. Pam has suffered for years with the symptoms of fatigue, numbness, myopathy, weakness, foot drop and gait. In February 2011, Pam was diagnosed with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) which is characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. CIDP is a degenerative chronic disease, quality of life is diminished, and a patient can end up in a wheelchair.
Recently, Pam moved to Las Vegas to receive further treatment for her CIDP; unfortunately, the treatment is no longer effective, and Pam has made the brave decision to undergo a stem cell transplant at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. The transplant procedure will kill my current immune system and blood supply with high dose chemotherapy, then provide a "new", or reset, immune system and blood supply with stem cells taken from my own blood prior to the chemotherapy.
Fundraising is vital to the overall success of Pam’s struggle to survive --- and we need your help! While there is no cure for Lupus or CIDP, a patient can have a renewed quality of life following a stem cell transplant. There are no guarantees, but Pam is in for the fight of her life.
