Mitch's medical help

After nearly two years of suffering from reoccurring respiratory issues, a routine follow up appointment turned into a nightmare for my Father In-law , Mitch Gentleman. X-rays showed “something” all throughout his lungs but nobody knew “what” it was. It was immediately decided that a medi-vac to the Swedish Medical Center, in Seattle, was in order.

As frightening as this was for the family, we remained hopeful that this would finally yield some answers regarding his declining health. Unfortunately, after running every test known to man kind and consulting with the Mayo Clinic as well as local Universities, a diagnosis still has not been made. Mitch remains dependent on oxygen therapy and steroids to control his symptoms. Doctors are hopeful but unsure of the length of time it will take for his recovery .

His loving wife, Kristie, has been by his side since this began, as she should be, however this has left them with no income for the duration of his stay at the hospital.

Our family is doing all we can to support them financially, as well as looking out for Mitch’s 3 sons who have shown amazing strength and maturity in this frightening situation. However, there is only so much we can do financially. Therefore we are humbly asking for donations to help offset medical, living, and travel expenses. From all of us THANK YOU ! And God bless
