Pulse Financial Services 2018 3rd Quarter Sponsorship

Welcome to our Pulse Gives Back Sponsorship Page!

We are honored to share the story of PFS’ Clients Dave and Sue Laughlin of Naperville, IL

This is the story of how our family dealt with cancer and what we’re doing today to help ensure more success for those battling blood cancer in the future.  Allow us to introduce our daughter Katie…these are her words:

Wonder Twins

Four years ago, my life changed forever, my brother, Mike, was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 38. He started chemo immediately at University of Chicago and was told he would need a stem cell transplant. While the hospital started checking the registry for potential donors, my sister and I went and got tested to see if we were a match, which was only about a 25% chance.

Katie’s Donation Day

On February 23, 2014 I received the best text of my life “Wanna be my blood sister? You’re a match!” of course, I said YES! I had no idea what the process would be but in my mind, it didn’t matter. Whatever I had to go through was never going to be close to what Mike was going through. On April 10, 2014, which is National Sibling Day, my family and I sat with Mike while he received a stem cell transplant. I was honored and so excited to be giving my brother the best gift ever……..life!! He fought hard and today is disease free. 

As you know, though, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives.  Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers. 

Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.

We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
