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.

HI all.
It has been a long while since I’ve given an update on Mel but we have been busy living. Which is fantastic. He recently had a visit to Cleveland and they discovered that he is having rejection again. They are assuring us that they can control this with medicine. Hopefully they can. But God has provided us with more time together and that is what counts. God bless all!

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.
