Having Emphysema Is Expensive

Organized by: Carroll P Florey

The person I am trying to raise funds for is one of the nicest people I know. Unfortunately he has contracted emphysema a few years ago and now is in bad financial shape because the medical expenses including medications are so expensive. Just the inhalers alone that keep this person alive costs over $120.00 a month. I don't think that this person should have to struggle financially as well as struggle just to breathe. This decease is terminal and eventually will kill the person who has it but if you have it, it is a long suffering death. Try breathing through a wet towel and see how it makes you feel. That is what this man goes through every single day of his life. Without his inhalers and other medications he will die. He has to decide which medications he will buy because he doesn't have enough money to pay for everything because his pension is very small. His condition is so bad that he can't walk more than 15 feet without getting completely out of breath and has to sit down to get his breath back. I am looking for some compassionate, feeling people who are willing to help this man with his financial problem so he can breathe easier and not be so stressed all of the time. He is one of the nicest people I have ever known. May God bless anyone who helps this man in his need.
