Carlene will begin the final stages of her treatment which will include very high dose chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. The side effects and recovery in this portion of treatment will be very taxing on her little body. 


In preparation for this next step, MSKCC

has a department that handles blood and platelet donations. Carly will have a 30 day hospital stay for administration of treatment and recovery. She will require multiple transfusions of both blood and platelets during this time. 


If you are in the local area, please consider making a donation on Carly’s behalf. Thank you in advance for your consideration and your continued support.
