Wade's family and friends united to raise money to provide medical treatment for Polycythemia ( a blood disorder) and COPD.

Wade was recently diagnosed in November 2011, with Polycythemia and COPD. Polycythemia is a blood disorder in which your bone marrow produces to many red blood cells. The increase of red blood cells causes the blood to thicken and this is a major concern. This disease is rare and there is no cure. However, without the proper treatment polycythemia can be life-threatening.

COPD is short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is also treatable, but there is no cure. COPD makes it diffficult to breathe and can cause chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Without treatment a person can expect to live very uncomfortable and plagued with illness. Treatment is the only option available for COPD and allows a person to live in relative comfort.

Wade is a husband, father of six children, and the grandfather of ten grandchildren and is expecting his eleventh grandchild. He is currently working to provide for his family and pay medical bills. However, as his condition worsens, he will no longer be able to work. His private insurance is very expensive and has very high deductibles and co-pays. We ask that everyone considering donating so that Wade can live for several more years and live in comfort. We appreciate the generosity of everyone.

Thank you from the entire Watts family.
