VETERAN FAMILY

Please consider helping this disabled veteran's wife who has a rare auto immune disease, Goodpasture Syndrome. She is in dire need of stem cell treatment in her lungs to help her breathing, which continues to deteriorate.  This family depleted their savings to treat this ailment two years ago. This is a life threatening disease.

Thank you for any contribution you make.  100% goes to her medical procedure.
