Gift of Life: High school graduate diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma this May - needs a matching donor. (1019 hits)


Meet Saxton Dunlap. Saxton Dunlap was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma in May, 2020. He needs to find a matching donor so he can have a stem cell or bone marrow transplant.

The best chance of finding a match is with someone who shares the same genetic heritage. Because Saxton is African American/White, his best chance of a match is with someone who is also bi-racial. Instead of starting college in Fall 2020 Saxton is undergoing chemotherapy.

The best way to start his story is in his own words:
"Hey guys, it's Saxton Dunlap. It's time I inform you of my terrible summer. I've been dealing with some pretty awful health symptoms from about May to now, and the doctors found out I have T-cell lymphoma, a type of cancer. I'm staying strong and I'm going to get through this, there is no doubt in my mind! I will be on a six-month journey of chemotherapy, and I have lost a lot of my strength and weight because of the cancer. But just like any bad injury, I will have to work hard to get all that back, and trust me, I will."
