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.

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.

Hi all, Would like to give an update on Melvin. Ever since he has had the lung transplant he has had a rejection. The doctors have decided to put him back in the hospital to give him an IV of some sort to help get rid of these rejections. I’m hoping and praying that this time it works. They have tried numerous kinds of IVs but nothing seems to help. Prayers are appreciated.
