On February 21, 2004 our life changed forever. Our daughter, Sarah Gittleman, had an anaphylactic reaction to medication and almost died. During her recovery we found out that she had Systemic Mastocytosis. We did not know what that meant but found out quickly. Within the next four months her symptoms were rapidly increasing and by July, Sarah was diagnosed with Mass Cell Leukemia. Sarah passed away on December 21, 2004.
Sarah was a typical 23 year old. who was a Michigan State graduate in accounting wanted to be a CPA.
As a Family, we wanted there to be a way to honor and remember Sarah. Since finding a cure is the most important thing to us we decided to create a research fund in Sarah's name.
We hope that someday we will find a cure for this horrific disease and thank you for donating to this campaign.
