Larry's Fight For Life

To all of those who know and love Larry Biggins, we are asking for your help through prayers and support. Many of us know Larry as a friend and a great football player from South Cobb High School, Class of 1983.  Others know him from West Point, Class of 1987 where he also played football and was known as "Scary-Larry".  Many fellow soldiers and comrades will know him as a fellow army veteran, who honorably served in the Persian Gulf War C-Battery 1-41FA 24th Infantry Division. Currently, he is also known to others as their loyal tax preparer that always goes the extra mile. But more importantly, Larry is known as a loving, devoted family man and a father of 5 beautiful children.

Larry is a diabetic and has been going to dyalisis three times a week for the past 2 years and is in need of a new kidney. But Larry is a fighter and has been known to work on his client's taxes even while receiving dialysis. He has been in and out of the hospital especially over the last 6 months enduring many surgeries and medical procedures. Currently, he is  battling a very bad infection which has caused a GI Bleed, Sepsis and Anemia. These conditions combined cause a life threatening drop in blood pressure which slows down his much needed dialysis and has caused him to need many blood transfusions. He is also unable to take pain medication due to the blood pressure and this causes him to be in extreme pain. Once his infection has healed, he will need a skin graft.  

Larry works as a Tax Preparer and this is the busiest time of the year and the time he earns most of his yearly income.  He needs to be working to provide for his family but due to his illness, he is unable to do so. The family is in desparate need of help to pay for day to day bills, food and keeping a roof over their head. As you can imagine, they also need help with current medical bills as well as long term medical bills.  Larry fought for our country and now he is fighting for his life. Let's do our part to help Larry and his family by donating whatever you can.

Please continue to pray for God's healing hand on Larry and pray for comfort for his family.  May God bless you and thank you in advance for your love and support for our dear friend!

We can not thank everyone enough for the on going support for Larry! We continue to raise our goal for Larry in hopes that it will help with expenses for obtaining a new kidney. As you can imagine, the VA has not been easy to work with and Larry's medical condition has suffered as a result. Please help us pray for the process of obtaining a new kidney for Larry! We will keep you posted on that journey as we move forward. On a good note, Larry celebrated his birthday on Sunday with lots of family and friends at his side. We are thankful and we look forward to celebrating many more birthday's with Larry! His will is strong and he is a fighter! So thankful for all of you who have donated, prayed and continue to pray for Larry. God Bless all of you!

Looking forward to doing more physical therapy today. Getting a "walker" that can double as a wheel chair. Progressing towards going home. Long way to go to get back on my feet but better than where I was just a week ago.
I am beyond blessed with the gifts of human kindness you have bestowed on me and my family! It is a testament that by standing together much can be accomplished. I love you all!

Thank you friends I am overwhelmed by your love and generosity. They are monitoring the surgically repaired skin graft for a couple more days. No infections or other problems has arisen. My heart is still besting faster than they like. They have me on a medication to help..
My dialysis session will go early tomorrow.
I had a minor setback on the eating front. But was able to keep food down. Things are getting better. Still a lot to fight!

I don't know Larry personally, but I did see his story on Bill Noble's Facebook page and took the liberty to "get the word out" via the GoBlackKnights.com site, and the associated Twitter and Facebook pages. As the Word says ... "Iron Sharpens Iron" and I know that Larry will come out victorious in all of this in more ways than one.
