Family and friends of Steve James are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.
Steve has chosen to fundraise with HelpHOPELive in part because HelpHOPELive assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility for donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses. For more information, please contact HelpHOPELive at 800.642.8399.
Thanks for your support!

Yesterday was my birthday had a great time. This morning……I GOT THE CALL From Mayo!!!!! I’m NOW #1 on the Transplant List at Mayo. They told me to pack a bag and keep my phone on me at all times! IT CAN NOW HAPPEN AT ANY MOMENT!
I NEED YOUR PRAYERS PLEASE! This will be a VERY Difficult surgery. The doctors told us from the very start my chances are 50/50 BUT, I KNOW A MAN! He said “I know the plans I have for you (STEVEN) and I TRUST His plan.

All tests are done. I’m number 7 (Lucky 7) on the Mayo transplant list. Meanwhile I now have to use on a ventilator when sleeping. to help keep lungs clear. (Sounds worse than it really is).
Still doing my daily walking of 2 miles on treadmill. My weight is going down….slowly. New target 174 lbs!
Have not been 174 lbs since Junior High 🙂
Really it’s the BMI of 28 that I need. The lower the BMI the greater the chances of survival/longevity after transplant. My goal is to break the record of longest living Lung Transplant recipient (27 yrs+)
Again I want to say Thank You! First to God for All He has done, is doing and will do on my behalf. I also want to give a heartfelt Thank You to each and everyone of you who has donated to my transplant fund. Thank you for your prayers and your kind words. That’s it for now 🙂
