Josh's Lung Transplant

Josh is diagnosed with Idiopathic Lung Disease (ILD) with pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Double Lung Transplant is the recommended treatment for IPF.  Josh is currently on the waiting list for a double lung transplant.

After transplant, Josh will need to stay near the hospital for a minimum of a month. Funds will help to cover the costs of staying in a hotel for a month, transportation costs, and other associated transplant costs. Additionally, we have some additional medical equipment to purchase for the hosue.

All donations will be applied directly to Josh's medical care and expenses. If you have questions about this process or about the campaign, feel free to email me using the contact link on the campaign page.
