She Passed Out in the Emergency Room

Removing Barriers for Blood Cancer Patients - Laneater's Story
DALLAS - Nov. 9, 2022 - PRLog -- Laneater Johnson didn't feel well. She had a fever with chills and she was shaking uncontrollably, so she decided to go to the emergency room.

After a quick assessment at the ER, they sent her to the waiting room to wait for a doctor. On the way, she passed out.

Laneater was diagnosed with leukemia and had to be transported 125 miles to the Dallas Medical Center.

Due to her disease, she was unable to work for more than a year. Her savings were depleted during the long treatment process. Even after receiving a bone marrow transplant, she was required to stay close to the transplant center for follow-up treatment.

Thanks to our generous supporters, the Icla da Silva Foundation helped Laneater with a grant for lodging during her follow-up treatments.

The Icla da Silva Foundation saves lives of patients with diseases whose only cure is a bone marrow or cord blood transplant by providing emotional, logistical, and financial support to remove barriers to treatment. Lodging is one of those barriers.

Fortunately, Laneater was released early by her hematologist, so the grant was smaller than expected. But the size of the grant made no difference in her desire to show gratitude.

As she tells us, "donations from generous, kind-hearted people can mean the difference between life and death."
