Fear tries to get in but we won't let it! We stand strong in faith that Jim will raise the funds of the goal! The doctors second review is 1/22/2015. It must be hard to be a doctor and know you can save someone's life but can't because of money. Jim is fighting for his life. Time is precious. Please help!

Meet my father in law Jim Snider. He is one of the most amazing men I know. He's a husband, a grandpa, a dad, an uncle and a friend to many. He's been a worker his whole life and has never stopped in moving forward. He has a heart of gold and his smile lights up the room. His spirit is young and his faith is strong.
Not long ago his world came crashing down going to the doctor for some health concerns. What he was told there was no way to prepare. He was told he wouldn't live long and that what he had had no known cause, no known cure. He basically left being given a death sentence. The disease progressed much quicker than they expected. An infection made him be admitted to the hospital. He had 10% of his lungs working and they gave him 2 weeks to live and told him his only hope was a lung transplant. 2 weeks has passed, they were able to clear the infection, he is stable but critical, and we know time is precious. He's held on and remained positive and has faith he will be pulled through this.
He has been transferred to St Josephs hospital and is not able to leave. He is continuing the battle to get on the transplant list. To get through all the red tape to get on the list for transplant we must raise funds, there is no other choice. So we are asking for your help, and every bit counts!
You see my father in law is battling pulmonary fibrosis and he will only live with a lung transplant. As family and friends we are raising funds for the out of pocket costs involved with the transplant. His next review to be approved or denied is next Thursday 1/22/15. Sometimes money stands in the way and all you can do is pray and hope that through many miracles can happen. Thank you for any contribution you are able to make from our whole family to yours.
