Alan Brancheau, my father, has a heart of gold and beautiful green eyes. That heart of gold still shines but his beautiful eyes have been ravaged by Thyroid Eye Disease. Over the past year, it's gone from bad to worst, he has become blind in one eye and the other is quickly deteriorating.
An immediate surgery(Orbital Decompression ) is necessary to save his vision, his self-reliance, his occupation and quality of life. Although I've spent countless hours working to get this procedure covered, insurance is not yet in place.
After using every resource to reduce the out of pocket cost, the lowest estimate is still $12,000 for the first conductive surgery. We're reaching out to friends, acquaintances, benefactors, and way out on the branches of the family tree to support this effort to save my father's beautiful green eyes.
