On behalf of
Kayla is the 31 year old, sister of past Chapter President, Miki Vargo, and has recently been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). AML is a form of blood cancer which causes bone marrow cells to mature improperly, resulting in abnormalities in the white, red and platelet making blood cells. In general, cancer patients may require up to 4 pints of blood every day for 2-4 weeks in order to tolerate some treatments. Since being diagnosed in May, Kayla has spent the majority of her time at UPMC Shadyside Hospital receiving chemotherapy and roughly two dozen blood and platelet transfusions. These transfusions were made possible by the blood products donated by strangers through the Central Blood Bank. When not in the hospital, Kayla is at home in Windber, PA, where she cherishes spending time with her 3 young boys and family; the driving forces behind her strength to fight and beat this cancer.

Take a risk and become involved in a worthwhile organization that could range from Chapter to Institute level activities where your degree of effort and fulfillment will take you as far as you want to go, learning throughout the process."
