After being diagnosed with with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) in February 2017, Richard has reached the point of needing a double lung transplant in order to survive. Over the past three years he has tried numerous medications and been placed on 02 full-time. There is no cure for IPF and treatments only slow the progression they do not cure it. The only “cure” is a lung transplant and that comes with it’s own risks and treatments as well. He will be on anti-rejection meds and will be traveling to Boston for follow up for the rest of his life. While the insurance will cover the transplant itself there will be extensive tests that need to be run in order to be approved and make the list as well as the expenses of medication and travel post transplant.
