As many of you know after being in law enforcement for over 8 years, DW spent 5 consecutive years in Afghanistan as a part of counter terrorism operations. What you don't know is since he has come home, he's been constantly and increasingly sick. In November, after having a cold for 48 hours he developed pneumonia. This quick onset made the doctors want to do more in depth testing and they discovered that he was exposed to some sort of chemical warfare. This has destroyed his immune system and our only option for treatment is a clinic in Kansas City that specializes in this type of poisoning. Since he was not military, but a contract mercenary, he does not have VA insurance.
The clinic in KC can and will immediately begin weekly treatments starting January 30. We have been told that he is already dying and without treatment he will not make it. The cost of the first cycle of 10 treatments will be around 8,500 not including the traveling/hotel costs for us. The clinic takes cash only and does not except insurance. This is not a feasable amount for us as he has not been able to work for a few years due to his health issues. Any amount that you could donate would help me make sure that I do not lose my husband and our children don't lose their loving father. Thank you!
