Hi everyone, I don’t very often make personal posts, but this is something very important to me and extremely close to my heart.
I have been talking about a bag that I have been making for my Uncle, but I have yet to make the post about my journey this year making it. I still plan on writing the post. Well, in short, this bag, actually a backpack, that I’ve been working on is very special because I designed it to hold and carry a 6 pound oxygen tank. My Uncle Allen has C.O.P.D. and is now in need of a lung transplant. To be put on the transplant list, there are various medications and treatments that he needs and a lot of it is not covered by his insurance, so he had to set up a GoFundMe page. The link to his page is just below. Any little bit that can be donated is very helpful. I have the Share buttons turned on also, so feel free to share my post.
Allen is my mothers “baby” brother, and he and I grew up together.
*From his GFM page:
“Hello my name is Allen, I am 53 yrs. old and I have C.O.P.D. and currently have 18% to 22% function of my lungs, Breathing is difficult even with oxygen, plus medication.
I need a lung transplant to get better. The funds i need as soon as possible because with out them i cannot be put on the list for transplant. They are for the medications and uncovered treatment, they need to see this so I can show i can pay for the treatment and the medications.
My sister JoAnn Woofenden had this to add:
” This is my brother. He does not smoke cigarettes and the transplant doctors are continually checking his lungs as he struggles for each breath he takes. Anything would help him to get to his goal for a transplant.”
Thank you for Helping!
