Prineville Man Needs Transplant


A Prineville man is fighting for his life and needs a $160,000 bone marrow transplant in order to survive. Kurt Kendrick was diagnosed with lymphoma about 8 months ago. Longtime family friend Pam Bachman says she's known Kurt for 19 years, and he's like a son to her: "Kurt got cancer, found out he had cancer about 8 months ago. He went to the hospital in the middle of the night with pain and he had a 25 pound tumor. And he had lymphoma cancer, and it went from that to into his spinal cord and his brain." Bachman says his insurance plan won't cover the transplant because the insurance company ruled that he had a pre-existing condition and so there is a 2 year waiting period. She says he is not expected to live past 3 to 6 months. With a transplant he has a 60% chance of survival. If you'd like to help, there is an account set up at Wells Fargo Bank under Kurt Kendrick's name.
