Support Gil Gilliam's Lung Transplant! All donations will be used for medical cost & related expenses not covered by insurance.

On November 6, 2010 a donor's generosity blessed Gil with a left lung transplant. After receiving amazing care from the staff at Methodist Hospital he & his wife temporarily relocated closer to the hospital to focus on his recovery.

Unfortunately not all medical bills are covered by insurance and out of pocket expenses such as labwork, transportation, lodging and physical therapy are mounting. Just one of his lifetime anti-rejection medications exceeds a thousand dollars a month AFTER insurance. Our goal is to ease the financial burden for a man who has given so much of himself so he can enjoy the precious gift of life & a much deserved retirement.

All donations go directly to Gil to pay for medical related expenses. Our family thanks you in advance for your continued support & prayers. We also encourage everyone to give the gift of life by registering to be an organ/tissue donor at

**PULMONARY FIBROSIS kills as many people as breast cancer every year but little is known about it. Pulmonary fibrosis is scarring of the lungs and supporting structures that make the lungs thick and stiff. Lungs lose the ability to move oxygen in the bloodstream so the brain and organs don't get the oxygen they need. Life expectancy is 3.5 years. There is no cure or treatment for IPF, the only option is a lung transplant.
