Hello. My name is Danny Bushnell and I need your help. Urgently.

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.

Hi. On April 4, 2021 I was lucky enough to get a new set of lungs. The surgery went well and I am healing great. The doctors and I are amazed at how well things are going. I am no longer on oxygen so that makes things so much better. My wife, Mary, is now out of work to help with my care. We will be living in Rochester for 3 months.
