Family and friends of Ron Davidson are fundraising to help offset the additional medical and related expenses not covered by insurance.
In November of 2019, Ron Davidson was diagnosed with interstitial lung disease (ILD), a rare condition that stiffens the lungs and makes breathing increasingly difficult. Over the course of a few short months, he has gone from working full time and actively hunting, fishing, gardening, camping and hiking every weekend to needing continuous oxygen and struggling to even walk across the kitchen. At this point, the only treatment that can save Ron’s life is a lung transplant. We are writing to ask for your support!

Message of gratitude and thanks from dad.
These last 8 months have been the hardest times of my life. When I was first diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, I knew there was no cure, and my decline would be fast. With my friends and family beside me, I started the long process of qualifying for the lung transplant list. I made it into the program just weeks before I turned 70. Which is the cutoff date.
I think I have had every blood test known, left and right heart catheterization, tubes up my nose and into my stomach for 24 hours. I can’t say enough good about the university of Washington medical center.
If it were not for family and friends encouragement thru this whole transition, I would never had made it. My 2 care givers are the drivers and schedulers that are still doing the last phases. All I have left to do is my oral evaluation, and that will start next week. Then I wait for the call. I cannot thank everyone enough for all they have contributed from money in my fund, to all the support along the way. There are too many to list, but I know who you are and will never forget.
Thank you all for the prayers and support.
My care givers which are my wife and daughter have been my rock.
Thank you all.

Ron, I hope this helps. I am keeping you and your family in my prayers. I know you don’t know me, but I know your daughter and she’s a pretty amazing lady, so you must be an amazing man. Much love to all of you!
