Help Hank Jozwiak

Hank suffers from severe COPD. Previously we were requesting donations for a double lung transplant, however, this option has become unlikely, therefore, funds raised will go towards a Stem Cell Rejuvenation procedure performed by The Lung Institute which is not covered by insurance. The procedure requires the practicing physician to take bone marrow and create stem cells which in turn would be implanted into the lungs to rejuvenate the tissue. There are only 4 states that currently perform this procedure which are Tennessee, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Florida. The procedure takes three days, and then the recovery process is up to another week. The lung institute will give Hank a $1,000.00 VA discount on the procedure. The funds raised will cover the cost of the procedure, recovery and travel expenses to and from the hospital. The success rate is improvement of lung capacity between 30% and 60% which will enable him to get off of oxygen tanks and extend the longevity and quality of his life. He is on a social security disability and cannot afford to pay for this procedure. It is not offered through the VA Hospital. The insurance company has denied his requests for any assistance in paying for this procedure. He is requesting donations to assist in paying for this procedure as he is terminal and would like to extend his length of life in addition to being able to enjoy the what time he has left with his family. Any donations and prayers are greatly appreciated. For more information on the procedure please click on the links below.
