Gonzales seeks help to keep fighting cancer

Brandy Gonzales of Grand Junction, the daughter of Mary Jane Gonzales and stepdaughter of Rich Rodriguez of Gypsum, has been battling cancer for a couple of years now. Her AML leukemia recently came out of remission and she is asking for help. She writes:

“This time my treatment will be a lot more aggressive. I have already undergone five rounds of very strong chemo. I will also need to have a bone marrow transplant. This is where I need your help.

I have been matched with cord blood for the transplant. I will need to maintain my household expenses while I am in the hospital for 30 days. I then will need to find accommodations within a seven-mile radius of University Hospital. I will stay there for 60 days before the doctor will allow me to return home.

I am asking for anyone to donate to my Bone Marrow Transplant Account. Every bit will make a difference. Please help me make this difficult time for myself and my babies just a bit more bearable. Your donations will help take some of the stress and worry off me.

There is an account that anyone can donate to at Wells Fargo Bank under the name “Brandy Gonzales Bone Marrow Transplant Fund #4139.” God bless you and thank you for all your love and support.”
