Dear Friends, Family and Community,
My husband, Big Paul Schuesler is a 51 year old disabled Veteran who suffers from Congestive Heart Failure. Paul’s doctors at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have told us that he is in need of a life-saving heart transplant. Earlier this year, Paul was hospitalized for nearly three months. He was in a coma for most of the month of April and had to be revived four times because his heart stopped. Paul currently has a LVAD pump implanted to keep his blood moving through his heart until he receives this life-saving procedure.
Paul grew up around Boston and graduated from Madison Park High School. He is a loving husband, father, grandfather and good friend to many. He worked in retail for a few years and then joined the US Army. Paul’s family has a long history of military service with his father, brother, uncle, two children and other family member’s serving in four of the five Armed Services. After leaving the Army with a medical discharge, Paul studied at Wentworth Institute of Technology and started a career in the computer field. Due to his poor health, Paul is no longer able to work or do many things we all take for granted.
Transplants are life saving but financially draining. Even with insurance, we are facing very high expenses that must be paid out of pocket. Some of these are co-pays, deductibles, lab fees, travel to and from the transplant center and he will be on a life-time of very expensive anti-rejection medications. This is where your help is desperately needed.
A fundraising campaign in Paul’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Northeast Heart Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. Please consider a contribution.
