Melvin Needs Our Help!

Melvin Willman is a 66-year-old man who is very ill. He has a disease called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) and a lung transplant is his only hope. Melvin is a very kind man with a wonderful sense of humor that brightens the day of everyone he meets. Now he needs the help of our family, friends, and greater community as the costs associated with transplantation can be overwhelming.

It has been awhile since I have posted anything about Melvin but he is doing awesome. It has been a year and a half since his lung transplant. He is doing rehab three days a week and has a part time job delivering flowers. He is enjoying his life once again.

Would like to share with everyone that Melvin has reached his year mark on May 8th of receiving his lung transplant. It has been an up and down year but the outcome has been fantastic. Thanks to all that have contributed to him in any way shape or form.
