As many of you know, my friend Lindsey is in need of a double lung transplant. She has been battling a lung disease called bronchiectasis for the past 10 years, and has at this point exhausted all other treatment options. Lindsey lives in Spokane, WA with her husband and 3 young children, but the transplant must take place in Seattle. When she gets the call that it is time, she needs to get from Spokane to Seattle immediately, requiring a Life Flight. This helicopter ride will cost as much as $12,000 and is not covered by insurance. After the transplant, Lindsey will need to stay in a housing complex for transplant patients for at least 3 months. She will also need anti-rejection medications. None of these things are paid for by insurance. We want Lindsey to spend her time and effort getting well and spending precious time with her family. We don't want her to be worrying about the enormous expenses associated with the transplant. And that is why we are holding a fundraiser!
How can you help? We need donations! We are hosting a Silent Auction on November 4, 2017. You can donate any item -- large or small, new or used, goods or services -- anything! Those donated items will be auctioned off with every penny of the proceeds going directly to Lindsey's medical fund. If you would like to attend the Silent Auction or place a bid, please contact me for further information. You can also donate to Lindsey's fund directly via her Go Fund Me page.
We are also holding a Raffle. The prize pack, valued at $300, includes:
- Starbucks Verismo Brewer
- Starbucks Verismo Milk Frother
- Starbucks Verismo Coffee Pods
- Three Starbucks Mugs
Tickets are available to purchase through me beginning October 15. Anyone can purchase raffle tickets, and you do not need to be present to win, so please spread the word! The winner, if not present, will be contacted to arrange for pickup/deliery. If the winner is out of the area, we will ship the prize to them at our expense.
