My brother Rob has Alpha One disease it's an autoimmune disease that attacks the lungs causing your lungs to get hard like a leather sac it makes it very difficult to get air in or let carbon dioxide out. My brother was put on the Trake then put on a ventilator and he was in ICU for 3 months and then because he had bad insurance they moved him to Tampa Florida to Kindred Hospital we have to drive all the way to Tampa every time we want to see him and in order for him to come home he needs a high-flow nasal cannula apparatus which is very expensive and he'll also need a generator and an electrician to hook it up to a special panel because if the electricity goes out he would not be able to breathe. Because my brother's insurance is bad they're going to ship him off to Georgia and then we will never be able to see him. Its hard enough going to Tampa as we are not wealthy people and gas tolls car rentals and hotel rms are very expensive. We just cant do it anymore. We go for the day and come back. Thats 41/2 hrs. on the road sending Rob to Georgia is so inhumane and breaks our hearts. We live in Cocoa florida. Our mother lives in Indiana and this would be extremly hard for her to get there. If we cannot get these items we need for him to come home to spend what time he has, than they will send him to Georgia. If you can give whatever you see fit we would appeciate it. We dont want my brother to spend what little time he has left in a hospital far away from his family and alone. Thank you in advance and God Bless You weather you can help or not. Its in the Lords hands
