David Melchor’s Story

As a young teenager, David Melchor was given the news that he needed a bone marrow transplant to survive.  This fourteen-year-old boy who enjoyed swimming, playing football with his friends and spending time with his family was suddenly faced with the life threatening illness of leukemia.

David and the entire Melchor family had no insurance coverage at the time, and agonized over how to pay the $150,000 cost of the transplant.  Positive Impact held a 60 day fundraising campaign for David, and raised the money needed for him to receive the transplant.

David has made a full recovery from the procedure, and is back to enjoying his favorite activities.  He goes to college, works and is now married!
