My Dad and Stepmom were in Dallas doing numerous tests to get put on the transplant list. At the beginning of December 2014, my Stepmom lost her job of 18 years. This was incredibly devastating for our family. We felt in our hearts that my Dad's condition and constant doctors visits caused her to lose her job. Ultimately, my Dad and Stepmom moved back to Seguin, TX. After many many prayers, my Stepmom was able to get another job a couple of weeks ago. My parents are currently paying $1200 per month for COBRA insurance until the new insurance is available and effective. We know the transplant will have substantial out-of-pocket costs despite having insurance and we want to help my Dad as much as we can with the costs associated with his transplant. My stepmom will also need to be out of work for a considerable amount of time during my Dad's testing, surgery, and recovery. Our family has really stepped up to the plate and helped out when they can. We take what life has to give us and try to make the best out of our situation. My Dad is so blessed by family and friends in his life. We know we wouldn't be where we are now without any of them.
Thank you to everyone in advance for taking the time to read my Dad's story and for your generosity, thoughts, and prayers. Any help is greatly appreciated and it will truly make a difference for my Dad and Stepmom.
