A.J.'s Medical Fund

A.J. Maggio has been suffering with COPD for a little over 8 years. I met A.J. one Sunday morning sitting in the lobby at Church of The King in Mandeville, LA. He was wearing his oxygen machine and having a very difficult time breathing. After speaking with him for a few weeks I could see he needed help. He asked me if I would be willing to do a fundraiser for him to have surgery. After a little research and speaking with Lauren at the Lung Institute, she explained to me that A.J. was a great candidate for a new procedure they were having great results, it has to do with a bone marrow treatment. So God put it on my heart to start a Go Fund Me account. The lung institute would like to schedule the procedure for the end of April 2018. The procedure is usually $8,000 but they are running a special for $4,500. A.J. needs a total of $5,500 to help cover travel expenses and hotel. If we can raise these funds in the next 30 days we will be changing a Godly mans life so that he may breathe easy once again. He is very excited about the possibility he will be able to have this surgery. His breathing is progressively getting worse so I am urgently asking for your help in raising the funds needed. Thank You for considering a donation for A.J.'s cause. Be Blessed! ...AJ Chappetta
