Hello to everybody who has taken the time to read this. My family is trying to raise money for my brother-in-law. He is 32 years old and needs a heart and lung transplant. He is a husband and a father of four. He was born with a congenital heart defect and his condition has severely worsened in recent months. He has been in and out of critical care at St. Luke’s Hospital in Milwaukee. Doctors say the he needs both a heart and a lung transplant to survive. His heart defect was caught when he was 14, and he underwent open heart surgery. He had a defibrillator put in when he was bout 16, but had to have it removed a few years later because it was defective.
On top of his heart issues, he also is in end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. Because of his lung issues and pressure on his pulmonary artery, they’re worried about the success of a heart transplant, At this point, they’re continuing to give him medicine. His lung damage is irreversible.He would need to be put on the transplant list and hope that one of each becomes available before he reaches the end of his life. We know the likelihood of this is not great, The only thing we can do from this point forward is hope for the best and have him keep fighting.
The last few months his family has struggled to make ends meet. So as his family we are try to raise as much money as we can to help them get through. We know the stress that he is going through because of their money situation. They also do not have a reliable vehicle to get him back and forth to all of his doctor appointments. So any help would be so much appreciated. Thank you to all in advance.
