David will be recovering from his transplant surgery at the Gift of Life Transplant House in Rochester, MN for up to 3 weeks. He will continue his recovery at home for another 6 months. During this time, he will not be able to work. Both he and his wife, Paula, are self-employed, which means there is no sick time or disability insurance to offset the cost of being out of work. Paula will also be out of work for several weeks as David’s caregiver. Although David has insurance, not all of the medical and personal expenses are covered. Medication, travel, housing, parking, and meals are adding up quickly.
It is with a humble (and thankful) heart that we ask for donations to assist them with this expense and life altering journey. Any amount is greatly appreciated but if you can’t donate, your prayers and positive thoughts for a smooth recovery are also greatly appreciated.
