Hello my name is Danny Bushnell and I need your help. Back in September 2019 I had to have shoulder surgery for a torn rotor cuff, afterwards I ended up in the hospital for a week on a ventilator, I was told I had environmental pneumonia. When they got ready to let me go they told me I had serve emphysema and would need supplementary oxygen for the rest of my life. Then in Feb. 2020 I was told I needed a lung transplant, then covid hit. Everything halted but the disease kept progressing. I was referred to the Mayo clinic in Rochester Minnesota, a 3 1/2 hour drive from my home in Proctor Minnesota. On the first visit there I found out that I also have Pulmonary fibrosis, and may also suffer from short telolmeres syndrome. Now my wife and I will be spending a lot of time running to appointments to make sure I can make it on the list for transplant. If I’m approved then we will have to live down there for 3 to 4 months while I recover. My wife has to come and live with me as I will a caregiver 24hrs a day 7 days a week so she won’t be able to work. Family and friends of Danny Bushnell are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.
