In October 2010, Tim Allison was diagnosed with Leukemia. He has undergone chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant, graft vs host disease, severe weight loss and severe breathing problems. In November 2015, Tim was told he needed a double lung transplant. In April of 2016, Tim received a double lung transplant. At that time Tims parents, Mitch and Kathy relocated to Philadelphia to be by Tim's side.
In December of 2017, Tim was diagnosed with accelerated chronic rejection of his transplanted lungs. He was taken by helicopter to the University of Pennsylvania from Rhode Island Hospital. On December 21,2017 , Tim was placed back on the transplant list for a double lung tranplant.
Currently Tim has a tracheostomy, he is on a ventilator and is receiving ECHMO and continues to wait for the gift of life, a double lung transplant. Mitch and Kathy have relocated to Philadelphia to be by Tim's side.
As you can imagine, there are many costs and expenses associated with relocation. If you could find it in your heart to make even the smallest donation it would be greatly appreciated.
