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!
There is a Bone Marrow and Blood Drive for WillÂ
on May 20th from 9:00am-5:00pm at two locations:
1> Â Chattanooga Police Service Center on Amnicola Hwy.
2> Â Hamilton County Sheriff’s Annex Â at 6233 Dayton Blvd.
We are also selling T Shirts to raise money for Will’s medical expenses. Â The cost of the shirts are $15.00; Â with $7.00 of that going to Will. Â To place an order please contact Ashley Murphy at 423-385-4569.
A charity fun run is also being planned for later this summer.
For those who wish to donate money, we have set up an account at Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union. Â Stop by any TVFCU location to donate or send a check to me or Chris Harper and we will deposit it. Â Make checks payable to â€œThe Will Frawley Memorial Fund-00â€.
