My Uncle's lung transplant

I am raising money for my Uncle Al. He is a Vietnam Veteran who was wounded in action on multiple occasions and always returned to the fight. He is now in the fight of his life. He is in need of a lung transplant. He struggles on a daily basis just to do the simple things in life that we all take for granted. Eating, walking, having a conversation; something we all do without thought he can no longer do.
 My Uncle has been there for me as long as I can remember. I have made it my goal to raise as much money for him and his family to make things as easy as possible for them once he recieves his lung. He will need 12 weeks of therapy after the transplant which will require him to stay in the city for up to 3 nights a week to make it easier on him to get to the hospital where his rehab will be. The cost for staying in the city for 3 nights alone for 12 weeks is staggering. This does not take into account the medications, doctors visits, fuel costs for follow up visits, food costs while in staying in the city among others costs that are too many too mention.
 I am asking for any donation small or large to help out his family. Our family appreciates any donation made to this cause.
