Hi, this is Bambi, co-host from CNI Radio's JimmyLee and Bambi Show. We provide the JimmyLee and Bambi Show as a labor of love to the Internet community for about 10 years.

Please NOTE: The above image for the Basic Bundle only has 1 Battery. We could not find an image for the Travel Bundle we talk about and it's pricing both of which are listed below and are reflected in the total amount needed above.

Those who listen to the The JimmyLee and Bambi Show, but particularly those that chat with us, may already know that JimmyLee has been on oxygen for several years now and suffers from Chronic Lyme Disease and a heart condition. Several years ago, when JimmyLee was in the hospital for the 2nd time within as many years, the doctor put him on oxygen because his O2 level was too low due to his right side diaphragm being paralyzed. He was sent home with  borrowed source of oxygent give us time to get a unit.

A great friend, Wayne in Wisconsin, came to the rescue with a used AirSep Elite concentrator. However, since it was a used unit, and JimmyLee has used it for several years now, it is now on it's last leg. The unit has simply shutdown at least twice and won't turn back on till it rests for several hours. It is also well past it's hours of useful life allowance.

Instead of replacing it with another full blown oxygen concentrator, JimmyLee would very much love to have the freedom of being able to travel again, or, at least be able to be outside and/or away from home for more than a short period of time.

See, the video on this GoFundMe page for information on the freedom the SeQual Eclipse 5 would provide for JimmyLee on the road so we could travel again, taking walks, camping, and visiting family and friends without anxiety, or needing to cut it short because JimmyLee is not getting enough oxygen and feeling very ill.

We tried to go camping last weekend, just a little over 2 hours away and had to return home within 24 hours. It was just too much. Too much heavy air and humidity, and he simply couldn't get enough oxygen and became very ill. It was also complicated by other health issues, but the oxygen would have made those more bearable as well.

Below is information on the SeQual Eclipse 5 (link is AirSep website with full info on the unit) that would actually give JimmyLee the freedom with the Travel Bundle noted below that has three extra batteries, desktop charger, ac/dc adapter, and much more, plus extend the warranty to 5 years.

Any help in that direction would be wonderful and greatly appreciated!
