(Morgan Stanley, Vice President)

“My experience with CURE started shortly after my 18 year old son Joe was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in June, 2007. I had never heard of CURE or the Aflac Cancer Center before that night and we had no experience dealing with a life threatening illness. That was soon to change. Joe was treated at Aflac and eventually sent to the NIH in Bethesda to participate in a clinical trial. We almost lost Joe on two different occasions while we were at the NIH; thankfully he stabilized and slowly improved. Through a family friend, I was able to meet Lauren Gearon. Lauren graciously spoke to my wife and me about her experience with aplastic anemia – she gave us hope. Three months later Joe had recovered enough to try going to college. Lauren was kind enough to meet with Joe – she gave Joe hope. We have been supporters of CURE since that time because CURE gives hope to families facing these horrific childhood illnesses.”
