From a press release:
Rev. Paul Kwon was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia on January 18, 2008. Now almost a year later he has endured 4 rounds of Chemotherapy, transferred from Good Samaritan to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance where he received his Bone Marrow Transplant on June 12. After 97 days of recovery treatment, he was transferred back to Good Samaritan in Puyallup where he, his wife and two small children reside. Rev. Paul Kwon is the pastor of Crosspointe Christian in Des Moines, WA. He is a dedicated and wonderful father and husband. The Kwonâ€™s have a debt of $250,000.00 from the Bone Marrow Transplant alone. Please help us in lightening the financial burden this family is enduring and allow them to focus on their true goal of getting Pastor Paul healthy again.
