Bob Dollarhide Medical Fund

My husband Bob has Lupus & a rare blood disorder called antiphospholipid antibodies.  His illness causes him to bleed into his lungs, have shortness of breath, has joint pain, swelling. Although he still tries to work, it takes all his efforts to work the typical day.  He just doesn’t have the energy to do more.  The doctors have tried numerous types of treatment, but Bob’s body has decided to reject all but one form of treatment. Bob now requires more medication just to keep him “stable”.   We have the opportunity to see 3 specialists at UCLA.  UCLA is 13 hour drive away from our home.  It is our hope that these doctors will have an answer. If no new treatments are found, they will keep treating him with mass doses of steroids until they stop working or his organs stop working altogether.  Despite us both working, we aren’t able to keep up with the rapidly increasing medical bills.   This is where you can help.  We are asking for help paying for the medical bills, costs of traveling back and forth to UCLA Medical Center,  as well as helping Bob’s bucket list request to go to Washington D.C. for this 4th of July.
Bob's a great husband, father and "Papa Bob".   He always goes out of his way to help friends and family.  He always makes time when people need him. He loves being around his kids and grandkids. He is the most genuine human being I have ever met.   Yet, during this whole ordeal, he has never given up hope for a treatment.
