Lesters Life

$17,945 of $75,000 goal

Created December 4, 2018
Lester Gurnett was diagnosed with COPD and has been struggling over the past three years. He had one Stem Cell treatment but needs at least three more treatments for the transplant to have any positive effect on his disease.  The sooner he receives a series of transplants the better his prognosis will be.
The treatments are very costly and the go fund me is  sorely needed for Lesters future life.  Those of you who know Lester, know that he is a one of a kind cowboy who has always been there for those in need.  Now this amazing cowboy is the one in need and we will all step up for him.  Rodeo has always been a close knit family and our hope is this family will come through for Lester, as this is an urgent situation.

The Calgary Stockyards, Sue & Don Danard, Judi Wilson, & Annette Smith have teamed up for the Go Fund Me in hopes this will aid Lester in receiving the most needed Stem Cell Transplants.

Just a note to let you know that Lester has been receiving a cheques from me everytime GoFundMe has deposited them to my account. Lester has been able to make another appointment for his stem cell treatment on Feb 28, due to your generous donations. Lester has been a good friend of mine as long as I can remember and this has been so rewarding to be able to help him reach his goal of survival. GoFundMe has asked that I report the above to you to continue the deposit of your donations to me so I can continue to give Lester your donations. Thank you and please continue your support as we are so close.

I have been asked about the fees that GoFundMe charges. 2.9% of the donation plus .30cents. If you add any amount that goes to GoFundMe that is not included in the donation but goes directly to GoFundMe as a donation to them. It is ENTIRELY OPTIONAL for a donor to add to the actual donation to Lester. I hope this clears up any questions.

Talked with Lester today and he said he was so overwhelmed with the support he has been given. His stem cell treatment is working as he is feeling much better. Lester will be going back down to Kalispel the end of February for another treatment. He then will be getting a cat scan the first of March. We need to raise another few thousand for this next treatment so please lets help Lester reach this goal. Lester said he didn't know what to say to all his donors, and I told him JUST GET BETTER, that's all we all want. Thanks to all our current donors, your support is so appreciated.
