Lungs for Tom

Hello family and friends of Tom Neary. My name is Crystal Wager and I feel honored to be able to set up this GofundMe page for my friends, Tom and Joanne.

Many of you know and have been following and praying for Tom and his medical needs. For those of you that are just learning of his condition, here is a brief review.

After several months of a nagging cough, Tom was diagnosed in December of 2014 with IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) – thickening of the tissues of the lungs. He quickly sought out a pulmonologist associated with Highland hospital. Under his doctor’s direction and care he led Tom in this journey and eventually referring him to the Cleveland Clinic for evaluation for a double lung transplant.

Tom had a couple of visits to the Cleveland Clinic in May and August, 2017, receiving information and having tests conducted. Then just a few days after his return from Cleveland, he suddenly became very ill and was hospitalized.

Unfortunately due to the progression of the disease and deterioration of the lungs, he has remained hospitalized and most recently he has been transported to Cleveland and he is now on the list to receive a double lung transplant. Things have moved very quickly and we are thrilled with the assertive direction the medical teams have given Tom.

Tom and Joanne have been strongly encouraged by the Cleveland clinic to fundraise for additional out of pocket expenses that will be incurred over the next 6 months to one year.

They have coveted your prayers, well wishes and thoughts. Now it is time to actively share financially with them if you are able to do so.
