Hi my name is Maryann . I am the wife of Niveo LaMagra. Please forgive me, I have never done anything like this.
My husband was diagnosed with COPD and emphysema. He was given five years. It is now 4 1/2.

With my husband getting worse. Four years have passed, I fear that I will lose him. I researched and found that a stem cell  treatment may be able to repair his lungs.

To our surprise they do not except insurance. Even if they did Medicare won’t pay for it. So, I am trying to raise $15,000.00 , so he can have this procedure done.

We are both disabled and live on a fixed income.  We are hoping to raise the $15,000.00 before the end of spring . For those of you who think they cannot donate, please keep in mind that every dollar is one dollar closer to us reaching our goal.

That means that 4  quarter ($0.25) donations add up to  one dollar. Every little bit adds up to bigger bits and  sooner than you might think our goal is achieved with people just adding a bit of their spare change

However, if you still cannot donate please pray for us to raise the money., Forward and share this page to your friends  and  family. The more people that learn about Niveo, the more Shares lead to Prayers that lead to Donations that will ultimately lead to a new lead on life for a very special man. His  family truly loves him and want him in our lives.
God Bless all of you.
