Mike Pugh 48yrs of medical hope come true

A million thanks to each of my friends, Family and others that has helped inm this fundraising toward my leg operation's in New York City. As most know by now Im trying to raise money to cover all the now $3900.00 hotel Expenses, $600.00 in garage expenses for car, $600.00 for Travel expenses to and from New York City and Gas, Food, And $1000.00 to cover health insurance expenses and house hold expenses while my wifes not working and having to stay with me while im in New York City going thru three operations over a period of 30 days while im in the hospital. after getting home we discovered that very important parts of therapy thats needed to bring my leg to where it needs to be is not covered by my health insurance. This therapy is needed for the next 8 to 12 weeks and is needed everyday for the first 2 weeks and then every other day after that for the rest of the time. So out of pocket expenses just for the therapy could be as high as $850.00 weekly , to say the least were not going to be able to pay for this but we will being it has to be done. health care total expences will be well over $9000.00 Really overwhelming expences to say the least, I personally have waited 48yrs to have this done and im trying to raise money not just so I can hopefully have a new leg by replacing lymph nodes in my leg to help the fluid flow and save my leg from being amputated. Im sure if you know me you know how i don't ask for money because im the type of person who likes to do it myself. But as a friend put it so nice.....In the Bible it says there is a season for everything - a time to give - a time to receive. Ever since I have known you, you have given of yourself, your time, your talents, your money - whatever it took to help others -- let us , all those others you have helped, now bless you ,
I never would have done this if she wouldnt have said that. i hope everyone has a blessed day and even if you cant give please show your support through letters to say how much you care, thank you either way its just a god send that there is now hope for me and millions of others to save my leg from amputation and with your help and its my dream it can save and hopefully show millions of others to be shown a way to help out there same type of condition as mine. As you can see there are over $9000.00 in expenses that was needed for the trip plus now the after surgery expenses that are adding up fast. Thanks for everyone's help so far its been a long rd so far and were on the last part of this journey that will hopefully help not just myself but others after they read the book of my living with this for 48yrs.
