Will Frawley is a Hamilton County Paramedic recently diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome. The disease is basically an early form of Leukemia. Will has had to receive several units of blood in the past weeks, and he will be leaving to go to Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore where he will receive a bone marrow transplant. He will be unable to work for approximately 1 year if all goes well. Obviously, the medical costs and loss of income will be devastating so we want to help!
