Insurance policy delays Kenwood man’s life-saving transplant

Help Hope Live in the News

Mark Alan Plummer

“It could happen to anybody.”

At 55, Mark Plummer experienced shortness of breath. Within three months, he was diagnosed with progressive and life-threatening lung disease. He began using supplemental oxygen 24/7 and pursuing a double lung transplant.

That’s when his insurance company called.

“They have a clause in their policy that they do not cover organ transplantation. I was devastated.”

Mark and his family have turned to Help Hope live to assist with the immense out-of-pocket costs associated with a life-saving transplant. Without financial help, the transplant is out-of-reach for Mark.
