Hello, my name is Anthony. We are trying to raise funds for my father, Tony who needs a double lung transplant. My father was diagnosed with sarcoidosis after a biopsy was taken in 2006. On July 13th 2015, he was admitted to the hospital due to an allergic reaction to medication. At that time, they did testing and found that he also had COPD, silicosis and asbestos scarring on his lungs. On September 19th 2016, he had to be on oxygen 24 hours a day, which resulted in his job loss and application for Social Security disability. On June 23rd 2017, he was taken to the hospital and admitted into the ICU for a week. He went through some ups and downs but then his condition with his heart worsened and it kept going into AFib. He then spent one and a half weeks in a cardiac unit to try and regulate it. My father has always been a man who would do whatever it took to provide whatever he could for his family. He is a very selfless person and also has spent many years serving the community he lived in. He has been a volunteer firefighter for 43 years and an active firefighter for 25 of those years. His career consisted of a lot of various trades from house Demolition and remodeling, to being an auto mechanic, a cobbler (shoe repair specialist), a heating plumbing and air conditioning technician and most recently serving the local residents of the township he lived in, on the road department. Please help us give Tony the support and love that he needs to try and get out of this debilitating and handicapping lifestyle that he is forced to live. We greatly appreciate any contribution that is made! Thank you so much!
