Kyle McConkey - 18 year old Canadian needs our help!

Kyle McConkey
Kyle McConkey, age 18, of Tsawwassen, British Columbia, Canada, has a rare form of leukemia.

He's been battling this disease for two years.  Two years ago he received a bone marrow transplant from his younger brother, Keegan. Everything seemed to be working and Kyle went into remission.  

Sadly, the leukemia returned again in early 2014. A second bone marrow transplant failed.  

Kyle was told in November of 2014, that there were no other options available to him and that he had just weeks to live. 

However, there is a ray of hope.  The Seattle Children's Hospital is experimenting with a new immuno-therapy which fights against cancer using the patient's own immune system. 

The hospital in Seattle is willing to accept Kyle as a patient in the therapy program.
Angels of God, pray for Kyle.
However, they can only treat Kyle if the treatment is paid for.  The Canadian government does not cover this experimental procedure under its universal health care system. 

Therefore help is needed and quickly.  The cost is $250,000.00.  $115,452.00 has been raised as of November 24, 2014.  

The McConkey family have to travel to Seattle by December 10, 2014, to start treatment. 

Kyle's mother, Jo-Anne and his father, Ross, are asking for our help.  They are desperate to save their son.

Pray for Kyle's recovery.
