Dear ATPAC friends,
It is sadden to write this email to share the news about our long-time ATPAC member, K. Ponthip Placzek, in Vancouver BC. Her son Pat Placzek, is currently fighting against an aggressive form of leukemia and awaiting a clinical trial at Fred Hutchison in Seattle, WA.
There is a fundraising campaign set up by Pat’s friends and families to help raise fund for his treatment. Unfortunately his treatment is still a clinical trial, which is not covered by his insurance. If you would like to make contributions, you may do so by using the youcaring website (http://www.youcaring.com/
