non alcoholic liver transplant for Josh

Hi my name is Candy Stone and I would like to tell you a little bit about Josh Gibson.  Josh is 38 years old and fighting a horrible disease . In Jan of 2014 he was admitted to the Hospital where he was informed of the possiblility of liver problems.  He was offically diagnosed with Cirrhosis of the liver in February. He was informed he would need have a liver transplant in the next 3 to 5 years. The doctors are not sure why his liver had delveloped this disease. Josh does not consume alcohol, did not abuse legal or do illegal drugs, did not contract any type of hepatitis.  He jokes he go it second hand from hanging out with his brothers and friends and inhaling alcoholic fumes.

He does have insurance and the money we need to raise will go towards what insurance will not pay for, the co-pay for all the doctor visits he is required to attend and for the diffrent types of medication . The money we raise will also help with the everyday cost of living during the recovery process which will put him in Dallas for at least 6 weeks after the transplant and he will not be able to return to Work for several several months possibly a year after. 
Josh is a father of two boys, Kevin, 18, and Nathan, 6.  Both of them are daddy's boys probably cause he bought them video games and spoils them rotten.  Please, please, please help us reach our goal.  Any amount donated is more then he had.  If you not sure about donating to him, he request you find someone that needs help and donate to their cause.  Please help us raise this money so that josh can continue to watch his son grow up.
