John's campaign for COPD Treatment

My husband, John McNally was a vibrant, happy Irishman whom everyone looked up to and loved to be friends with.  He has agreed for me to request help for this , so desperately needed treatment  for COPD of  10+ years. He has progressively had more frequent episodes of dyspnea through the years to where now he uses Oxygen 24/7 and at night a small ventilator,  to handle the sleep apnea. His activity has dwindled to that of only traveling to doctor visits and occaisionally for a hot dog lunch. His repeated visits to the hospital always involves the use of Prednisone which causes brittle bones and upsets his immune system. He is on a ton of respiratory medications causing many other medical issues. I have seen this man change from a very outgoing, happy, excellent dancer, understanding man, to one that sits in his recliner, huffing and puffing to walk to other rooms in our house. Through a friend of ours, we were introduced to an advanced treatment for COPD through "The Lung Institute" that uses the patients own stem cells to regenerate his lung cells. This making it possible to live a productive and enjoyable life. Unfortunately, this treatment, being so new , is NOT covered in anyway by his insurance. He is only 73 years old.  These funds would be so appreciated as soon as possible as John now is becoming so depressed  over this whole health situation.  Please help Johnny to get his breath back and his life. Thank you.
