Timmy Shuman's Transplant Expense

Update--10-2-15                                                                           Since this campaign began, Timmy has received his transplant.   However, he has  still been making trips back and forth to Emory University Hospital every two weeks.   He has been admitted several times since he was released after the transplant in July. 

Travel and lodging have  become expensive for he and his wife.  Unfortunely, the Mason House on campus at Emory has not been available but once. 

Timmy appreciates the continued prayers and financial support of his friends, family and public.   Timmy is hoping by November to be able to cut those trips down to monthly.   God has been so good to Timmy and his family.    

Beginning of Campaign-                                                              When a person thinks of Timmy Shuman, the first things that will come to mind is that he is humble and kind, a man of God and that he loves his family.  A faithful member of his church, Timmy also has a passion for gospel music and ministers to others through song. 
Timmy is 54 years old and grew up in the Richmond Hill area.  He is married to Polly and they have  4 children and 3 small grandchildren.  Right now, Timmy needs our help.

Five years ago, Timmy had to go on dialysis.  He also retired from the Bryan county BOE shortly after that.  Not only is Timmy in renal failure, he is also now in liver failure.  He has been hospitalized 6 times now since late January and at times has been very critical.
On February 25th, Timmy was transported via ambulance from St. Josepah's to Emory University in Atlanta to be evaluated for a liver and kidney transplant.  On February 26th, a team of doctors met with him and determined that he was a good candidate for a transplant, thus the journey has begun toward that.  

During the next few months, or however long it takes to get the right match for Timmy, there will be many trips back and forth to Atlanta.  Travel and lodging will become expensive for he and his wife.  In an effort to help defray travel costs and future costs once the transplant happens, we are setting up this account to seek assistance from anyone who is willing to help. 

We are believing in the Lord to be with Timmy every step of the way and we are counting on all who read and share this page to help in what ever way they see fit.  Please keep Timmy and his family in your prayers as they begin this journey toward a better quality of life and healthier days for him!! 

Thank you in advance for supporting Timmy on this journey.
