Lung Transplant For My Uncle Thomas

Hey guys! As many of you know, my family is my heart and I would do anything in the world for them. A lot of you know my Uncle Tom and know how kind, cool, and lively he is. You may also know that he's worked in warehouses for most of his life. Years of warehouse work can attribute to lung disease and a gang of other issues. Well, my uncle suffering from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and pulmonary fibrosis which is basically scar tissue on the lungs making it hard for him to breathe. The doctors have put him on an oxygen tank and they say that he is in need of a lung transplant in order for him to live. He's on a transplant list, but nothing can be done until he has at least $5000 to get the operation. He will also have to stay in Columbus for 6-8 weeks after the surgery to heal, and my dad will be there with him as his caretaker. I have started this campaign in hopes of raising the money to help my uncle get this transplant. Anything you can help with is greatly appreciated ❤️
