In late 2018 my mother in law was diagnosed with T-Cell Prolymphocytic Leukemia (T-PLL), which is one of the rarest and most aggressive of all known forms of Leukemia known to date. Even with all odds against her, my mother in law battled and fought as hard as she could. Even on her worse days she continued to hold her head high, have faith, and continue fighting. At first, after being diagnosed, all her treatments, procedures, and steps required to defeat this disease seems to be going exactly as the doctors were hoping and things were looking positive. She had found a donor for her bone marrow transplant and all her test results were exactly where they needed them to be to move forward with the procedure. Due to a scheduling conflict the appointment had to be rescheduled for the following week and in those 7 days her test results sky rocketed and the transplant was canceled. The original chemo she was on had stopped working and from that point she began trying several different kinds of chemo, which came along with roller coasters of rashes, swelling, side effects, misery, and in her case an extremely bad allergic reaction. cause a including Chemos that had not even approved her specific type of Leukemia but she was running out of options and time and never stopped praying for a miracle.
Unfortunately, Wilma had developed an extremely severe rash all over and everything from that point took a turn for the worst. Within a weeks time she went from normal everyday life of walking, talking, breathing on her own, etc. A couple days later she was needing her oxygen more frequently, losing her voice, needing her walker to assist her getting around, and so on. Little did I know over the next few days that followed she would get even worse. Within the short time period of a little over one week the cancer had completely taken over and unfortunately, Wilma Jean Lindday, at age 52, lost her battle and gained her wings home on June 27th, 2019. Along with the loss and grieving, the family has tried to come up with the money to bury her and give her the funeral she would hope to have and we feel she deserves. It has been nearly a month and my heart breaks not being able to lay her to rest over money. I am asking everyone to take a moment and imagine if it was your loved one just stuck, laying there in the hospital because you couldnt afford to have her buried. I’m begging, please, any amount counts and all the prayers are appreciated through this difficult time.
