Community rallies to help raise funds for Sabine Parish teacher battling cancer

Cyndle Eyre was diagnosed with Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with CNS in 2020 and have been undergoing treatment at MD Anderson. 

Last year, Cyndle underwent successful Yescarta CAR T-cell treatment that sent her into remission. Despite hopes that CAR T had finally helped, new scans in August of 2021 revealed that the cancer was back. Her doctors are recommending a second round of CAR-T-cell treatment using a different brand, Breyanzi, as her best chance at beating this again. They believe her body is at a much stronger starting point and can accept the treatment to attack the source of the cancer.
 
The issue now is that her insurance has denied coverage for this treatment. With the support of her doctors, Cyndle and her family have submitted three appeals and just received a denial in response to her third and final external appeal. The team at MD Anderson said this is rare, so we do not understand why insurance has denied this, especially considering how necessary this treatment is to save her life.
 
Please join the community of Sabine Parish in helping get this mother and teacher the medical treatment she needs.
