I’m helping to beat blood cancer by taking part in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave!

http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/michaelfriend First – English | Segundo - Español Hello Friends, For some of you it has been a short while since we have been in contact and for others a little longer (for those in longer group, I hope you remember me). On the 9th January 2021 my daughter Ignacia (19 years) was diagnosed with Leukemia, type ALL-B. There are 4 types of Leukemia if you did not know. (https://www.cancer.org/cancer/leukemia.html) She is having treatment in Brisbane, Australia and is on a trial for a new immune therapy drug called Blinatumomab. This trial is to try and remove Chemotherapy from treatments of cancer and replace with immunotherapy. The trial is run by ALLG (https://www.allg.org.au/clinical-trials-research/current-clinical-trials/). The opportunity for Ignacia to participate in this trial I believe has been beneficial to her, with results after the first dose of the immunotherapy showing her in remission. I am sending this to all my registered contacts, being over 2500 people. I am only asking that each person donates AUD 5, USD 3.5, EUR 3, CLP 2800, PNS 14.50, BRL 19 to raise AUD 14,000. These funds would go via the leukemia foundation in Australia to give other people access to the immunotherapy. As many of you know, a side effect of chemotherapy is hair loss, which is something Ignacia had to go through, along with many other side effects from Chemotherapy. My plan is to shave my hair on 9th July 2021, being six months since Ignacia was diagnosed. That is one week from now so please click below quickly to donate. I will post a timeline and the event over the next week. Hola amigos, Para algunos de ustedes ha pasado poco tiempo desde que hemos estado en contacto y para otros un poco más (para los que están en grupo más largo, espero que me recuerden). El 9 de enero de 2021 mi hija Ignacia (19 años) fue diagnosticada con Leucemia, tipo ALL-B. Hay 4 tipos de leucemia si usted no sabía. (https://www.cancer.org/cancer/leukemia.html) Ella está recibiendo tratamiento en Brisbane, Australia, y está en una prueba para un nuevo medicamento de terapia inmune llamado Blinatumomab. Esta prueba es para tratar de eliminar la quimioterapia de los tratamientos contra el cáncer y reemplazar con inmunoterapia. La prueba está a cargo de ALLG (https://www.allg.org.au/clinical-trials-research/current-clinical-trials/). La oportunidad de Ignacia de participar en esta prueba creo que ha sido beneficiosa para ella, con resultados después de la primera dosis de la inmunoterapia que está en remisión. Estoy enviando esto a todos mis contactos registrados, siendo más de 2500 personas. Sólo estoy pidiendo que cada persona done AUD 5, USD 3.5, EUR 3, CLP 2800, PNS 14.50, BRL 19 para recaudar AUD 14,000. Estos fondos irían a través de la fundación de la leucemia para dar a otras personas acceso a la inmunoterapia. Como muchos de ustedes saben, un efecto secundario de la quimioterapia es la pérdida de cabello, que es algo que Ignacia tuvo que pasar, junto con muchos otros efectos secundarios. Mi plan es afeitarme el pelo el 9 de julio de 2021, ya que hace seis meses que se diagnosticó Ignacia. Esto es una semana a partir de ahora, así que por favor haga clic a continuación rápidamente para donar. Publicaré una línea de tiempo y el evento durante la próxima semana.
