Michael Treinen, who suffers from Acute Myeloid Leukemia, is getting a little help from his friends at the Kurt O’Brien Foundation (KOBF), a charitable organization dedicated to educating children and young adults about cancer prevention and healthy living. The organization, founded last year by the CEO of OB Cos./Simply Self Storage, is helping to raise awareness for Michael’s cause.
Michael beat the cancer in December but went into relapse in January. He is now in need of a bone-marrow transplant but is at his lifetime limit for insurance. His family needs to raise $500,000 by April 3. For more information about Michael including photos and a journal of his experience, visit www.caringbridge.org/visit/michaeltreinen. Donations can be sent directly to the family at:
