Have a heart and please help my friend

$5,478 of $7,800 goal

Raised by 61 people in 76 months
My name is Bill.  I am trying to raise funds for a friend of mine who has major on-going medical issues.  He has life threatening heart problems that involve replacing a few of his valves that were already replaced before, many years ago.  Right now, one of his valves keeps getting stuck in the open position and causes him a lot of pain, not to mention further damage to the valve.  The doctors tell him that if the faulty valve gets stuck in the closed position, he's dead!  

My friend is self employed in a small cottage industry, but has no health insurance left.  He is having trouble paying his week-to-week bills and now needs $7,800.00 just for the upcoming medical tests he's scheduled for.  He has depleted his personal and business accounts and is in dire need.

Please help me, help him!

Thank you and God Bless!

I heard from my friend Gary yesterday via e-mail and thought that everyone would be interested in an update. (Edited for brevity.)

"Hi Bill

On the health front I have been feeling pretty good for the last 2 weeks now, no issues at night at all. I am thinking the new med they gave to help free up the valve is working pretty good, and I have someone living here now who cooks all 3 of the meals every day and so I have had no fast food for 3 weeks now. That's a huge change for the better too I think.

Have a great day! Stay safe and well.
Gary"

Gary expressed his thanks to EVERYONE who has sent their well wishes and has contributed in whatever way they could via the fundraiser. He also said he's been getting in a good amount of work/orders in, so he's keeping busy and earning some more $$$ too!

Please keep spreading the word and sharing the website address with anyone you can think of.

Last donation made was 15 days ago. :-(

I realize that everyone here has been on the fundraiser site ( http://www.gofundme.com/1yn4rc) and contributed, so I'm not expecting anyone to donate more if they already have.

It would be a BIG help if you forwarded the fundraiser link to as many people as you can get it to, so we can keep this going.

Thanks!

To paraphrase the words of Erich Maria Remarque "...All's quiet on the Fund-Raising Front!"

No donations for 3 days running now. :-(

I'm sorry to keep repeating myself, but if you've already donated, I thank you. If you haven't, please do. And if you can't, at least share the link to this site to as many people as you can get it to, so we can keep working towards our goal.

God Bless!
