Lungs For Life: Fundraiser for Jim

On July 17th, Jim was diagnosed with IPF (Interstitial Pulmonary Fibrosis), a progressive scarring disease that limits lung function. The doctors provided medication that has a 25% chance to slow the disease, but it is normally considered to be terminal.  It quickly became apparent that transplant was the only solution. 

This fundraiser will help offset the payment of medical bills and doctors visits that Jim will need through the coming months. 


Your donation is greatly appreciated, and will help the Kraus family land on their feet after such a trying time.
