Last year I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis and a prognosis that is terminal without a lung transplant. I've just recently married the love of my life, have a beautiful new step daughter that I'm very proud of and many, many friends and family whom I love very much. I really don't want to leave them all just yet. Over the last several months I've been through many, many tests and recieved a referral to the Stanford Medical Transplant Center for their review. They agreed that I need a Double Lung Transplant for survival. I have remained working full time through this whole process to maintain my insurance and income (I love my job) and my wife Fran and I have been saving dilligently. The costs, however, are overwhelming. My initial plan was to "power through" this on my own steam, but the time has come to ask for help. We have many more tests and procedures to pay for along the way and the medication requirements are costly as well. We will have to live within 30 minutes of the hospital for up to four months after the surgery and will be renting a small hotel room. As "The Call" to come for the transplant could come at any time, we are in dire need to raise funds as fast as we can. Any help is greatly appreciated. God Bless, and thank you very much.
