All monies raised will be used for medical and drug expenses not covered by my insurance and medicare

My name is Mike and in march of 2009 diagnosed with IDIOPATHIC PULMANARY FIBROSIS which is a scar tissue buildup in the lungs and no cure except for lung transplant. My dr sent me to UCSF to determine if that was indeed what I had and yes it was confirmed. I spent most of last year going thru all the tests and was finealy given papers stating that I was a good candidate for transplant. As of march 31 then told me that I had met my weight goal but was still not sick enough to list. I was within 10 points on my breathing test meet their goals. Told to use my 02 more and come back in 3 mo's. Hopefully by then I will be sick enough to list. With that being said any donation in any amount will be accecpted and used toward hospital costs that my insurance will not cover and also for the life long antirejection meds that I will need after transplant. Thank You in advance for any help you can give. Respectively MIKE SUNSERI PS. I have a 4yr old grandson who would miss me if I didn't have this transplant, he is my best buddy. Ok now that I have had a few people look at my plea I find it pretty bad that I would have to make the first donation as I do not have the money to do such after all that is why I am asking for everyones help in the first place. I have to say that this experiance with a fundraiser is very disappointing compared with all the other peoples requests with help which they have received some sort of monetary benefit for their time doing this. If you think IPF is not as big as cancer or heart desease then look it up on your computer, it is a very real and life threatning desease and every bit as bad as cancer and other deseases. Please reconsider me and anyone else asking for IPF help in donations it is not a fun thing to have and waiting for transplant may never happen because you are never sick enough until it is almost too late to do anything. Doaners usually come from cadavaers but there are many factors that have to happen even when a doaner is found. I thank you for your support and not wish this desease on anyone.
