Help Pops Get Some New Lungs
Organized by: Rocky Stevens
Last May my dad was diagnosed with "Interstitial Lung Disease". But after 4 months or so of tests, waiting, second opinions, and some minor surgeries and biopsies, he was diagnosed officially with Pulmonary Fibrosis. They don't know exactly how or why he caught it out of the blue like he did but it has been super aggressive and he needs New lungs. My dad is a Vietnam war era veteran, where he proudly served over 8.5 years as a hellicopter crew chief. A few years ago He retired as a union carpenter. He will be taking a trip to the mayo clinic for some more observations and studies this July but we were officially told his replacement lungs/surgery will cost in excess of $850,000. Our insurances, will not be enough to cover these expenses and my mother and I are doing all we can to make ends meet. We are in dire need of any/all assistance we can get. Please help us get pops some new lungs.
