Vernon McAllister Medical Fund

Many of you who have known me have probably heard me talk about my older brother, Vern.  Vern has been living with AIDS for many years.  He has been able to get the care he needed when he lived in San Francisco, as the city provided him with excellent subsidized medical care.  Unfortunately, he was evicted from his San Francisco apartment last year which not only changed his living situation but changed the level of medical support and coverage.  He no longer receives the treatment, care, and medication that he needs in order to live.

Vern has half of his normal lung capacity and is having trouble breathing.  His white blood cell count is dangerously low.  He needs access to cost-effective treatment and medication.  And, unfortunately, he needs it soon.  One of his medications alone cost close to $1900.00 per month and due to financial reasons, he has stopped taking them.

After speaking with my brother, my family and I have decided to start this GoFundMe page.  We hope to use the funds raised here to help get Vern the medication he needs now and allow him the time to plan for the future.

I have donated to friends who have GoFundMe pages and I have seen how they have helped people.  I have learned it is a blessing to be a blessing.  Please prayerfully consider helping in any way you can. 

On behalf of my brother and my family,
