IAFF Local 4092 is raising funds to help support our Brother, Lieutenant Ken Sterling, as he courageously battles his diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
In this family, no one fights alone!
Ken is adored by not just his loving wife and family, but all of his brothers and sisters with the Schaumburg Professional Firefighter's Association. He continues to be a face of inspiration through his strength and endurance. Join us as we pledge to stand by, and support Ken, in any way we can!
Our next step begins on Friday. Now that Ken has failed all the conventional treatments for his lymphoma, we enter the world of clinical trials. Our first step is an immunotherapy drug that will be administered once every 3 weeks.
Thankfully, this should be easier on his body than the CAR-T treatment.
We plan to talk to our doctor about beginning the search for a stem cell donor match. I will post the details here if anyone wants to get tested. Ideal donors are people who have never been pregnant, as any previous pregnancy increases the risk of rejection. Also, younger donors are preferred.
Includes: 2.5 hours beer and wine open bar, buffet style food from BBQ King, Live Music by "Face The Music" band, 50/50 Cash Prize Raffle, Raffle Basket Prizes, and Silent Auction.
If you need more than 5 tickets, please place multiple orders for the correct amount. Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience. *If you are purchasing for a group, please inform all members of your party to reference the name of the person who purchased the tickets at the time of entry
We officially got the ball rolling for the search for a stem cell donor for Ken. If someone ends up being a perfect match, it will require a blood stem cell donation (not a bone marrow donation). Anyone who is interested is encouraged to register on the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry, but again, you will not be donating bone marrow as our hospital will harvest the stem cells from the blood.
4092 has setup a go fund me for any individuals looking to donate to the Ken and his family.
