Wade Needs Our Help!
Billy Wade Perry (Wade) of Hickory, NC is a 62-year-old man who is very ill and needs our help. He is a father of four and a grandfather of five. In 2014, he got sick and was later diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). IPF is a disease in which tissue deep in your lungs becomes thick and stiff, or scarred over time. As the lung tissue thickens, your lungs can’t properly move oxygen into your bloodstream depriving your brain and other organs of the oxygen they need. For Wade to survive, he is going to need a lung transplant. The cost of transplantation can be extremely overwhelming.
