This is the Jeremy Wilson Lung Transplant Fund. The funds will be used for Jer's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance

Jeremy Wilson is 22 years old and he is a strong young man with a loving heart. He was unfortunately born with a lung disease known as Bronchial Pulmonary Dysplasia. The doctors didn’t think he would make it to the age of three, but he lived on life support until the age of nine when he had a double lung transplant in September of 1999. He was doing well with his new lungs for the most part until he went into a lung rejection in 2002. Luckily the doctors were able to help him surpass the rejection so that he could continue living a normal life. In November of 2009, Jeremy’s Dad had passed away from kidney failure. Also in 2009, Jeremy developed Swine Flu. Jeremy was not in good condition, since his lungs were rejecting again. Jeremy later learned that because of the Swine Flu, he had developed a new lung disease known as Bronchiolitis Obliterans. This disease is unfortunately not able to be cured and it’s causing his lungs to continue the rejection. The only solution left is to have a second double lung transplant. Jeremy is currently living on a life support unit at home waiting for a second transplant. With a second transplant come many evaluations which require many hospital visits. The hospital bills have become outrageous and the family needs help with raising money for all the many of expenses that come along with a new transplant. After a transplant, Jeremy would need to live at the hospital for two weeks or more and his family would have to stay near the hospital as well. This process will become quite expensive, as will all the new medications Jeremy will have to be put on. This financial burden on the family has become overwhelming and they’re desperately seeking any form of financial assistance. Please if you could find it in your heart to share with this family, it would be of great blessing. We also ask that you keep Jeremy and his family in your prayers, and we will pray that your kindness be rewarded.
