Bob Mills' Lung Transplant Fund

Hello Everyone,  Those of you that know me know that I have been struggling with COPD for many years. I am a product of the 70's and 80's when smoking was acceptable. I quit smoking over 10 years ago, but this disease does not stop. My doctor says I drew the short straw. It is incurable and will continue to get worse until I die or receive a lung transplant. I don't want to die. I am leashed to an oxygen hose 24hrs. a day. I am now listed for both a single and double lung transplant at The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. This required a lot of testing and driving back and forth to Philly many times for the last 3 years. The costs related to this operation are staggering it involves a lifetime of follow-up aftercare, but the first three months to a year are the most intensive, with trips three times a week to the hospital, extensive rehab, and anti rejection medications that can run thousands of dollars a month even WITH insurance. It's enough to bury most people, but I have a lot to live for and have no plans to let this get me. I have an amazing and beautiful wife who has my back and deserves much more than I can provide her with now. I have a grandson down south that I haven't met in person yet. I have many other grandkids and relations that I haven't seen in years. Here, I am asking for something I have never asked for before; financial help. I have very good insurance, but the co-pays, travel, prescriptions, and more, run tens of thousands of dollars. That said, please donate 5, 10, 20, 20,000 dollars, whatever you can afford. It's going to a good cause and what's nice about this website is you can be assured it's only going for medical expenses. Please pray for me.
