Save my Dad

My  my dad was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in April, and was sent to U.T. Southwestern heart transplant center in Dallas  because there was nothing that the cardiologist could do for him here in Fort Worth.  He's got  blockages in both arms  both legs and right side of his heart. His heart is only working at a 20% rate and the heart surgeon would like to try a pump first before doing the transplant.  Unfortunately my father's insurance does not cover the pump.  We were told that we needed to start a fund raiser  for him to even be put on the transplant list, because you have to  prove that you can afford the rejection medication for at least two years after the transplant has been completed. Unfortunately the medication that he needs is not on his prescription tier. The medication is over $10,000 per year as of today. My parents are self employed and  with all the medical, hospital and perspiration bills both have incurred they have depleted the savings account.  No work means no income and that is why I'm asking for any help you can give them. Any amount would be appreciated. Please open your heart to save my dads.
