Description

Loan has been a Social Worker since 1996, helping low-income families locate community resources for basic needs such as rent, utilities, and medical needs. She has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia B Cells, 95% in her body but has not spread to the brain yet. Loan is in dire need a matching marrow or stem cell donor to help save her life. She is currently in the hospital receiving treatment. Her daughter is in college and comes home every weekend to help take care of her. Her 16-year-old son is a sophomore honor student in high school and takes care of her after school until her husband comes to the hospital to stay overnight. Since her diagnosis, their lives shifted a full 360 degree, but Loan feels blessed to have great support from my family, relatives, friends, co-workers and medical staff.
