Bernard Roberson, from Modesto, California is fighting the battle of his life. He is suffering from a severe and progressive lung condition, known as Interstitial Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) Familial Disease. This is a progressive condition isolated to the lungs, where the lung tissues become scarred making it more and more difficult for a person to breathe. Unfortunately, IPF is a disabling condition with no known cure or treatment, and all too often patients require a lung transplant. Bernard’s condition has progressively worsened, and he now requires full-time oxygen, and his physicians have told him that without a lung transplant, he probably won’t survive much longer. Bernard desperately needs your help during this very difficult time.
Bernard worked very hard his whole life to support his eight children. He worked for the US Post Office in Oakland, California for 34 years. He is now the proud grandfather to nine adorable grandchildren, and he refuses to let his medical condition get the best of him. More than ever he is determined to watch his grandkids grow up and spend as much time with his family as possible. Bernard also has a passion for his Harley Davidson, and looks forward to the day he can once again ride with his motorcycle club, The Black Jaks of Modesto, CA. Bernard is a loving and proud family man, but unfortunately he can no longer face his transplant expenses alone and he needs your financial help.

Dad’s update before noon: Although dad arrived at the hospital way before his surgery was schedule, he is still waiting. The doctors administered the anti-rejection medicine (2 bags) which should have taken an hour each to get in his system. They scheduled him for a 12pm PST surgery which would take 8 hours.

Great news!! God is good and faithful! Dad got the call yesterday that a match had been found for a right lung! He arrived at Stanford Medical Center this morning and is being prepped for surgery. I want to thank the family who were so thoughtful to donate this lung and to the angel it belonged to.
We are asking for prayer and positive energy to be sent towards my day and the entire team at Stanford! We thank you all in advance for your love and support!
We ask that as God touches your heart, to send donations as soon as possible to HelpHOPELive campaign for Bernard Roberson. We need your help…we don’t ask for much but we are asking that you send what you can now!
