Family and friends of Travis Gibson and his family are raising money to pay for medical expenses associated with a double lung transplant. The family lives in Georgia and will be having the transplant in Charleston, SC. It is a requirement to live within 10 minutes of the hospital for 3 months post transplant.
Travis has chosen to fundraise with Help Hope Live because of tax deductibility for corporate donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses. To make a tax-deductible donation to this fundraising campaign, click on the Donate Now button.

Here is an update from yesterday afternoon. This video was live on Facebook:
After arriving at MUSC, the doctors decided the lungs were not good enough to do the surgery.
After waiting on traffic to clear a little and eating dinner in the hospital cafeteria, Travis was told there was a chance a different pair of lungs could come to him. They wouldn’t know anything until after midnight Tuesday night. Em and Travis went to stay at Em’s grandparents’ house in North Charleston and headed home today. Someone else received those lungs last night. please pray for them and both donor families.
Please continue to pray for the perfect lungs for Travis!
