I have been battling COPD for 7 years now and it's getting to the point where I can't even roll over in bed without gasping for air. Pulmonologists say there isn't much that can be done to help me as the damage is irreversible, but I have been researching and contacting doctors all around the U.S. and one contacted me about stem cell treatments and believes it could prolong my life for a while longer. It won't be a cure, but anything is worth a chance right now. Anything is worth being able to spend a little more time with my family as I am only 59 years old and would give anything to watch my kids and grand-kids grow and prosper. I have so much to teach them, as for most of them, I'm their only grandpa. 

The treatments are $4600 and I would be dead before I ever came up with that much money. I am here to ask all my family and friends for help to keep me alive. Help me to be able to breath a little bit. This is my last resort because medications can't help and I don't qualify for a transplant. If you can find it in your heart to donate, even just a couple dollars, it would be greatly appreciated and would mean the world to me that you cared enough to help me take this chance.
