Transplant funds sought

SHARE Transplant funds sought

Jade Pusey, with the help of Utahns around the state, has won a key victory in his fight against a rare cancer. But another battle looms on the horizon.

More than $225,000 out of $235,000 needed has poured in to pay for a stem-cell transplant that could save Pusey's life.

However, other medical procedures will cost the family additional money, and more fund-raisers will be held, including the following:

A bracelet sale at the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office.

June 28 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., garage sale in the Dick's Market parking lot in Centerville, 350 E. Pages Lane.

June 29, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., all proceeds from haircuts and tips at Great Clips will go to the transplant fund, 12682 S. Redwood Road, Riverton.

July 4, 10 a.m., Liberty Days "Dunk a Cop" booth at Constitution Park, 465 N. Wasatch Drive, Layton.

July 11, 7:30 p.m., concert at Viewmont High School, 120 W. 1000 North, Bountiful.

Pusey is the director of law enforcement at the attorney general's office. He is suffering from a cancer so rare that only 200 people have been diagnosed with it. Pusey's insurance company won't finance the stem-cell transplant because it deems the procedure experimental.
