Whizbang,

I work with the Houston Walk.
This a good fund raiser and a good way to meet other patients and families.

I was at this walk for my dad, who sadly passed away in April after 2 unsuccessful bone marrow transplants.

We raised over $23,000.00 at this walk.

Team Illuzzi was my team, we raised almost $4,000

Congratulations! I'm impressed by your dedication. Who knows how many future patients you and the other Walk supporters have helped?
