R.E. Nail has a reputation for helping others, so it is no surprise that he has taken his own serious illness as an opportunity to “pay it forward.”
Diagnosed with myelofibrosis, a rare form of blood cancer, Nail is fortunate in that his sister, Cheri Patton is a match for the bone marrow transplant he needs.
But he is mindful of the many who don’t have that option. That’s why he and his family are hosting a Dinner and Bone Marrow Drive this Saturday, Aug. 13, at their church, New Midway Baptist Church.
