Willie's Lung Stem Cell Treatment

Hello, my  name is Willie Bond. Some of you may  know me from my years in Nashville and I have shined your Shoes either at the Downtown YMCA or the Holiday Inn Express on Broadway.

I served in Vietnam, and while there, I was exposed to Agent Orange. Since then, it has caused lung damage. For years, I've had to deal with COPD.  I'd love to get stem cell research treatment done so hopefully I can have better lung capacity. 
85% of the people who are able to receive Stem Cell Treatment for their lungs get 50-75% of their lung capacity back, and that would be a miracle for me.

I am looking to visit the Lung Institute in Franklin, TN.

$25,000 would completely fund the treatment and give me a chance to breathe right again.  I am looking to raise the money in 60 days.

Any donation is sincerely appreciated.
