Last year I married the man of my dreams on a gulf beach at sunset and less than a month later rushed him to the hospital with chest pains and difficulty breathing.
Sarcoidosis had flared destroying parts of both of his lungs. He was diagnosed as terminally ill and has to be on oxygen for the rest of his life.
During the next 6 months, while he fought for his life, I was able to get him medical insurance through the state.
However, now that he has his disability income, even though it's not enough to cover our bills, they shredded his medicaid. His insurance no longer covers his doctor. They stopped covering the medicine that had put him breifly in remission.
He is literally deathly ill, is out of remission, has more lung damage and now heart and intestinal damage.
He does not qualify for medicare until he's been disabled for a year.
He is just being released from the cardiac unit now, where they have been attempting to get some of the inflammation down in his lungs and making the call on whether he needed heart surgery immediately or could be closely monitored for an aortic aneurysm on an ongoing basis.
Doug has been excepted into a clinical trial at Florida University where he will be able to see a Sarcoidosis Specialist for the first time.
This is our best and perhaps only real hope of prolonging his life.
However, it is far away and travelling with him in this precarious state of health, is difficult and tricky.
We are relying completely on the generosity of our families right now. 
We desperately need help with travel expenses, medicine, even medical equipment. He needs portable oxygen, a wheelchair, but, for now all I care about is getting him what he needs to survive.
I do not want to ask for help, I hate doing it, but, I just can't bear to let him die without trying everything possible.
If you are able to help in any way, it is so appreciated. 
Thank you so much for your prayers and support.

Our friends, family and supporters have raised nearly $2, 000 to help my husband!
Others have reached out with food, medical equipment and even airline tickets to get him home to NY while he is still able to travel!
We are so touched and overwhelmed with gratitude as we continue the fight of our lives.
Yesterday on-line friends from his Buffalo Bills fan page donated $300!
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

My husband is somewhat more comfortable since being able to get the medicine and medical treatment he needs and I am so grateful to all of you who have pitched in. There is no sign whatsoever of remission but, we have not given up hope or our fight!

Today is a big day for us!! My husband is seeing the specialist that has treated him successfully so far and that is not covered by insurance. The visit is $300, which you've all helped make possible with your genorosity!
We will also be able to pay for the medicine!
At least for this month!
I'm so excited and relieved!
We have also heard from the University of Florida regarding his next appointment!
We still need so much help and are fighting insurance, looking for breaks on the medicine, but, our first goal is met!!!
Thank you all so much. Your continued prayers are still needed and appreciated!
Please help me save husband's life!!!

Thank you all so much for your support during this difficult time. The money you have sent so far helped so much with travel expenses. We have enough for my husband to see the doctor that has helped him and writes his prescriptions. With a discount Walmart offers we can save 75% on the immune suppressant he needs that insurance won't cover. Thank you all so much for your caring, sharing and prayers!
