My husband Bill desperately needs your help.

Bill’s long battle with kidney and liver disease (he has been on dialysis for over six years) has resulted in him needing a double organ transplant to survive. We’re asking our family and friends to help us through Help Hope Live, a nonprofit that will help with the crucial expenses during and after the transplants. While my insurance and Medicare will cover the actual surgeries, Bill will need constant care after the surgeries, and we will be required to stay in or near Cleveland for eight to 12 weeks following these complicated and difficult procedures. While my work has approved my time off for this, it will be unpaid leave. Bill and I already struggle financially due to his illness and him being unable to work. His frequent hospitalizations as well as several other setbacks have completely depleted our savings. We will need to pay all of our normal bills and mortgage during the time of his transplants, as well as our expenses in Cleveland, including our lodging. We will have very little income during the time I will be off work, and we need your help. Donations to Help Hope Live will ease our financial burden and provide critical care to Bill.

WOW! Bill got a call at 2:30 am on February 14, 2019 to get to Cleveland Clinic for transplant. He had a liver transplant on February 15th. He had a kidney transplant on February 16th. He is doing great. Both the liver and kidney are working good. He will soon be moving to a rehab facility.
