Allyson has been diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APL.) She is told my many medical professionals that this is fully curable.
We know that Allyson has loved ones far and wide who want to help when they can and simply want to keep up to date as new information arises. (If we've learned anything in the past few days, it is how quickly facts change!) With so many people who care about Allyson, it difficult to keep everyone informed.
Going forward, we will keep this site updated as needed with facts as we know them and expectations for the future. We will also utilize the "Ways to Help" on this page should any needs arise for Allyson and her family.
Thank you to everyone for your support. Allyson has shared with me how much has enjoyed the kind words (and inappropriate jokes) she has received so far!
(Please note, the link to the donations to CaringBridge are not directed to Allyson but to the CaringBridge site that will help make this page available.)
This page is currently being maintained by Mary Catherine Tompkins, a long time friend of Allyson. Please let me know if you need me to make any edits or adjustments. Thank you!
