More Info

My mom was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2013. Unfortunately, this disease is terminal without a lung transplant. In the last few weeks, we have all realized that we are much closer to that reality. The cost of a lung transplant estimated at 900k-1.3 million dollars. We may need to stay in Cleveland with mom in the hospital from now until surgery and up to 6 weeks post. Social work estimates out of pocket expenses for family lodging, food, transportation, and many other expenses to be around 25k. Her surgery would be at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland OH, and since we are from Jamestown NY (2 hours away) many family members will be displaced for an unknown amount of time. Now, if you know my mother, you know that she would never ask for help. So I’m doing it for her and my father. They are proud people, and the thought of them having to take money out of their retirement for a chance at my mom having more time with her grandchildren is sad. I’d rather they used that money to have more experiences with them. So, if you can, donate a small amount. All of the funds will go to support Mom during this extremely difficult time.
