Beginning with transfusions at only eight weeks of age, she was able to tolerate the anemia up into her mid-twenties when the effect of her anemia became much more critical, She then began experimental drug therapy at the University of Virginia. Cynthia was treated with Cytoxan and then later treated with Imuran. These two drugs in succession pushed her anemia into remission for over twenty years. In 2002 the drug therapy became ineffective and she again became reliant on blood transfusions. The frequency of these transfusions in- creased over time up to the point that Cynthia required two units of blood every three weeks. "Our family has reached our goal of bringing in 500 blood donations through Red Cross blood drives in memory of Cynthia.We thank those who have already given a to al of 564 donations at previous local memorial blood drives and elsewhere in our country. Your continued support benefits many patients in need/' said Lee Snyder, Cynthia's husband. We will continue our drive because giving blood is giving the gift of life.
