Portable Oxygen Concentrator Fund

All right friends.  I have decided that I have to get the portable oxygen concentrator that will allow me to travel again.  Arranging for oxygen for a trip is a nightmare, but a portable concentrator is allowed on airplanes and I will be much better able to keep advocating for single-payer.  I have already appealed to Kaiser, but they are not paying for the equipment. (Yet another reason to achieve Medicare for all.)  No one should have their lives so disrupted because they lack the funds to pay for appropriate care.  And, yes, I have checked into rentals, and of course that is made as complicated as you can imagine and expensive.  

     I am not begging for handouts.  I will write or perform other tasks in exchange for some support now.  If you are able to assist, please know I appreciate it so much.  Last evening I listened as Larry wondered if he might get a job cleaning toilets or something similar to help.  It broke my heart.  He is 73 years old and not in perfect health by any stretch.  

     Please help me take a big step back towards more independence and the ability to live fully with lung disease... and only share this with trusted people.  I trust you, so I am sending to you.
