Dad needs a Heart Transplant

$11,395 of $12k goal

Raised by 61 people in 31 months
So as many of you know my dad has been in and out of the hospital for years. The last two years have been hard, and the doctors say that he will need to have a heart transplant for him to get better.he just got out of the hospital yesterday, his sodium levels are not where they should be and the medication they would like him on is $16000 before insurance, since it is the only drug of its kind. Not to mention that the actually transplant surgery is over $100,000, which is the cost of the hospital fees, the heart, surgery, and medications and rehabilitation. i would love for him to be able to do more of the things he loves to do and to do them like he used to. I miss going to things like reptile shows and the insect fair with him, and i know my sister misses him going to her band competitions and shows. This year because of the cold and wind he couldn't come pick out the Christmas tree with us or stand to put on the lights.
  I would love to be able to have him do these things with us again. Please,if you can help us out in anyway it will help immensely ! Thank you for reading !
