Help Flying Wienie owner afford lung transplant

Donation protected
We're trying to help our boss John raise money for his wife's double lung transplant. They need some help because of COVID and the current economy's effect on their small business. All costs for insurance premiums, deductibles, doctors and co-pays have gone up. We ask you to donate whatever you can. We thank everyone here for supporting them in their time of need.

Some info about Denise, Co-Owner of the flying wienie.
Denise is a fun-loving wife, mom and small business owner. Denise and her husband John own and operate a 'Ma and Pa' restaurant named the Flying Wienie. She was a significant part of the place, and all the customers loved her. Denise has had to give up doing almost everything she loves to do because MAC turned into stage 4 COPD.
